For the last few months, I’ve been suspiciously eyeing the packages of black garlic at my neighborhood Trader Joe’s. As far as pantry ingredients go, it has a distinct air of mystery. I couldn’t help but wonder: Why is it black? How is it made? And most importantly, what on earth can I use it for? I’m so glad I finally got over my hesitation and brought some home — it turns out that it’s absolutely delicious!
