The rich black cloves of Texas Black Gold Garlic are created from white garlic grown right here in Texas thanks to local farmers. While the origin of Black Garlic remains an enigma, in Asia, the naturally caramelized form of the bulb is a culinary delicacy that has also been used as an ingredient in Asian medicine for years. Black Garlic is growing steadily in popularity in the U.S. for its opulently layered flavor profile and for its potential health benefits.
Locally grown garlic bulbs are harvested then heated or “fermented” from one to two months at a constant temperature that causes enzymes and sugars in the garlic to break down naturally- nothing is added.
The cloves inside the paper-thin skins turn into a soft, pitch black and spreadable clove. The flavor becomes a mellow, sweet and addictive essence that can be used to bring a new delicious twist in cooking or eaten straight.
