Must Umami Black Garlic
Must Umami is a proudly Estonian organic Black Garlic range, with garlic growing without plant protection products and artificial fertilisers – making it good for your body and the environment. The garlic is cooked for three weeks at low temperature with high humidity, which causes the natural sugars to caramelise and the garlic turns black. The taste of the garlic becomes pleasantly sweet and caramel-like, the consistency becomes like marmalade and the health-promoting properties multiply. Black garlic has antioxidant and immune-boosting properties to bring vitality and strength to the body. For the back-to-school season, you can use the black garlic paste as a spread on crackers, and rusk or as a dip that could be paired with other veggies or bread sticks. The Black Garlic bulbs can also be consumed as raw snacks (peeled), as unlike normal garlic, these have a remarkable umami taste that doesn’t leave behind an unflattering aftertaste or smell.
