Black garlic, black rice, black quinoa, black beans, black lentils.

  • The Black garlic looks interesting! I will have to check into using it, It might turn people off, but I think most people like to try somthing better!

  • I’m a big fans of black garlic for its texture, flavour and aromas…
    hunting the black garlic all over the internet eddedup with fail,
    so i made my homemade black garlic,
    from 20 cloves garlic that i fermented, they come out success with only 6 of them, the vaccum pack is the key !

    i know why this is so pricey due to prescize prosses and highly energy consume to create them…
