Food For Thought: Black Garlic is More Than Flavorful

Posted by Annette Bellisari on

Lately, black garlic can be found on menus everywhere, but this unique ingredient isn’t anything new. It’s been around and in use for centuries. Its origins are unclear, but it started in Asia well before it became mainstream in the United States. One reason for its popularity is that black garlic, like fresh raw garlic, has antioxidants and other key nutrients that can help to improve your health and prevent serious health issues. It has been used for flavor and traditional medicinal purposes and in a variety of Asian cuisines for centuries.

How do we even begin to compare two things that in my mind are equally wonderful? Of course, I think all of our gourmet spreads and sauces are excellent products and that any one of them would be just as good as the next -- equally fabulous, each in its own way.
