    Yum!!! Just eating it out of the husk. I haven't even looked for recipes yet.

    Yeah, I've never had it. How would you describe the flavor?

    It's deceptively simple to make, but also a big pain in the a$$. You have to keep whole heads of garlic at about 130-40 degrees Fahrenheit, for about 30-40 days. I just vaccum sealed them and threw them in the restaurants dehydrator, which is always on and at that temp anyways. But it'd be a real ***** to try and pull that off otherwise...

    It's very akin to roasted garlic, but sweeter, and earthier, almost curry-like. It also has a touch of that ferment tang, but none of the raw garlic sting. And the texture is really fun, very fudge-esque.

    this^^^^^

    Sorry for the thunder-steal. When it hit the door, I ate a whole head as a snack.

    Sticky like fudge, but fingertips licking good. I looked into making it myself, but couldn't see how I could do it economically. Good on you!
