INGREDIENT OF THE MONTH: BLACK GARLIC

Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

NEED TO KNOW

There’s something mystical about the transformation that occurs when garlic is cooked at a very low temperature for several weeks. With its deep colour, tangy, molasses-esque flavour and fudge-like texture, black garlic is really rather special.

HOW TO

Use it to make baked eggs and omelettes that bit more interesting or try blending with cream cheese for a quick dip.

TOP TIP

You can eat the cloves straight from the bulb, meaning it’s a lovely way to add intrigue to a cheeseboard.
