Tesco sells garlic in bizarre new shade

It's sweeter and less smelly than its white counterpart and you can eat it raw! Say hello to black garlic...

We British have an appetite for unusual foods. Literally. No sooner is breast milk ice cream back on the menu in London, but Tesco announces its latest unusual food product, black garlic.

Yes, you read right – garlic that’s black. But it’s not simply a darker version of the familiar white bulb, oh no. Is it really different to normal garlic?

According to the producers it is much sweeter than traditional garlic. You can even eat it raw, straight from the bulb, and you won’t get bad breath or feel like your mouth is on fire.

In fact, it is being sold as a pimped-up version of regular garlic that has twice the amount on anti-oxidants as the pale variety. It also has a longer shelf-life, it’s low in fat and it is rich in natural sugars and amino acids, making it extra tasty as a cooking ingredient.

Why is it black?
To get the colour, white garlic is fermented and the sugars and amino acids contained within it combine to produce melanoidin, a substance which stains the cloves black. The process gives greater depth of flavour and gets rid of the smell.

How do I cook with it?
If you don’t fancy chomping on raw cloves, black garlic works well with roasts, pasta sauces, risottos and stocks. The taste is reminiscent of the sweetness of balsamic or molasses and it subtly adds a bit of umami to meals without overpowering them.

When can I buy it?
Garlic turned goth will be on Tesco shelves from May.

基本上英國飲食文化可以用一個字來形容 - 悶!

英國菜無論喺食材種類抑或烹調方法,來來去去都係果咋;

而且英國亦唔似得香港咁多元化,無咁多世界各國不同美食可選擇~

但奇就奇在市場竟然有空間去容納"古怪新食物"......

早前倫敦有人奶雪糕 ; 遲吓5月超市仲會有黑蒜頭!

 

根據生產商所講,黑蒜頭比普通蒜頭甜好多,可以成個就咁生食,食完口腔唔會有辛辣感覺,而且仲唔會口臭~

黑蒜頭被形容為普通蒜頭既"升呢版"......

基本上黑蒜頭食法同普通蒜頭一樣~ 除咗比普通白蒜頭所含既抗氧化物高出1倍之外,亦比白蒜頭可以存放得更長時間; 低脂、含豐富天然糖份 + 胺基酸~

白蒜頭本身所含既糖份 + 胺基酸,經過發酵後就會產生一種叫做"melanoidin"既物質,依種物質會令蒜肉變成黑色,發酵過程中會加強蒜頭食味,但同時會除去臭味,就會成為黑蒜頭!

黑蒜頭5月會喺Tesco 上市~

如果到時蘇格蘭既Tesco 都有得賣既話,我都會買來試吓!
