So, what is ajo negro?

Ajo Negro, or "black garlic," is a highly prized ingredient in many cuisines, revered for its complex, umami-rich flavor and numerous health benefits. It is created through a slow fermentation process that transforms ordinary garlic into a sweet, savory, and slightly tangy ingredient with a soft, chewy texture and a dark brown color. Black garlic is low in calories and high in antioxidants, making it a popular ingredient in health-conscious dishes. Its unique flavor profile makes it a versatile ingredient that can be used in both sweet and savory dishes, from roasted vegetables to desserts.
