BLACK Garlic??

My local grocery store has black garlic in stock, said to be savory and sweet. Has anyone ever tried black garlic? If so, what was it like?

Never heard of it before. I have found some pretty close to black in the bottom of my vegetable bin.

Ew... LOL!!!! :) Not that kind of black garlic. Apparently the heads are put in a temperature controlled unit and come out like that after 3 weeks. They are supposed to be sweet and savory. I'm really interested. I found a recipe for scallops that calls for a slice of black garlic on top. Sounds delicious!

I hope someone pops on that has tried this so I can find out. I'm going to buy it either way (on my way very soon) and will let you know!!!

Yes I did read that - and I just tried it - AMAZING!!!! It tastes so delicious........ exactly as it describes.. sweet and savory but still a BIT garlicy but not hot.

I ate a whole clove but savored each tiny bite... I could eat an entire head.. I wonder what that would do to my digestive system!!
