We sell a wonderful product , produced by 2 lovely ladies Cathy and Jenny  in Braidwood –  Garlicious Grown Black Garlic.

So what is Black Garlic?

Black garlic is the result of using temperature and humidity to caramelise the garlic to produce black cloves which give the flavour of almost a savoury sweet molasses. It is one of my favourite “go tos” for either a quick canape, a beautiful garlic butter on a steak or to lift even the simplest of pasta dishes.

In the range we have both peeled and unpeeled black garlic cloves ( I personally love it with seafood like the unpeeled as it protects the cloves in the jar and i just love peeling back the skin to reveal the jewel inside) and a range of powders which are so quick and simple to lift any dish

Smoked garlic powder – dust over a cheese souffle as it comes out of the oven.

Black garlic powder – lifts any pasta dish to a whole new level

Black garlic and rosemary – sprinkle over a hearty pumpkin or tomato soup , rub over a boned leg of lamb

Black garlic and lemon myrtle – beautiful with seafood or any asian inspired dish for an extra depth in favour.
