Author Notes: I first discovered black garlic earlier on in the year and love its sticky, almost burnt chewy caramel texture. On further investigation, I found out that our own Amanda, yes. Amanda H was one of its earliest pioneers......So, this is only fit for food52, and me obviously. - Kitchen ButterflyKitchen Butterfly

Food52 Review: I made this recipe with regular garlic and it was fantastic. There are a lot of strong flavors in here, but they meld together beautifully. I used a mortar and pestle instead of a food processor, so the spread was rather chunky, not smooth. We ate it with homemade pitas and it was quickly 11 year old begged me to make more soon. – WinnieAbThe Editors
