About the Product: Fermented black garlic concentrate. Umami in a bottle. Mole without the chocolate. Fermented for 1-3 months, this earth-dark garlic concentrate tastes like balsamic vinegar, deeply caramelized onion, sweet-sour-savory tamarind, and seared meat. The garlic is fermented very slowly until it turns jammy and sweet. We combine it with dates, chestnuts, 10-year aged balsamic vinegar, toasty tamari, and chili and then mortar and pestle crush it together by hand to create a creamy paste.
Ingredients: dates, chestnuts, black garlic, tamari, balsamic vinegar, gochugaru flakes, apple cider vinegar, spice.
How we use it: Use this potent concentrate to give instant depth to any dish. Make mushrooms taste mushroomier. Serve a swish alongside charcuterie. Add richness and complexity to soups, stews, or marinades. We’ve found it now appears in nearly all the dishes we make; a very little goes a very long way.
