Black Garlic Ushers In a New Age of Taste
NORTH BRANFORD, Conn. (September 2009) â€“ Cooking EnthusiastÂ® presents its newest exclusive item thatâ€™s turning heads and revolutionizing food dishes, black garlic. Unlike regular garlic, black garlic is fermented, giving it a darker color, slightly sweeter taste and smoother texture. Â Black garlic is remarkably tasty on its own or can be added to your favorite dishes.
Black garlic is also good for your health. Â The long heat-based curing process creates high levels of antioxidants, more than doubling the power of raw garlic.Â Black garlic also contains a natural cancer-preventing compound. Â Different forms of fermented garlic have been revered for their health benefits in Korea and Japan.
Black Garlic adds taste and depth to any dish.Â Unlike raw garlic, you donâ€™t need to heat or sautÃ© black garlic to extract its flavors. This versatile ingredient can be used in innumerable ways, including all of the ways raw garlic is used. Â Compliment your favorite recipes for soups, dips, sauces, meat rubs, vegetables, seafood, and even desserts with this new form of the classic â€œstinking roseâ€. Visit the Cooking EnthusiastÂ® Web site for a delicious Black Garlic Bruschetta recipe.
Developed in South Korea in 2004, black garlic is now being produced in the United States using the highest quality Californian garlic. How does the garlic become black?Â The all natural process of turning highest quality Californian garlic into black garlic is done without additives.Â When the sugar in garlic goes through a heat-based fermentation process, it produces a dark substance called melanoidin, which is the cause of the â€œblackâ€ in the garlic.Â Throughout the month-long process, the black garlic is tested several times to ensure premium quality and taste.
