Black Garlic Molasses

Molasses made from Black Garlic

Black garlic is a natural “reaction” of sugar & amino acids in fresh garlic turning into a gooey sticky, black inky, celestial, musical, sweet flavor rich, umami-packed taste.

Louis Camille Maillard, a professor of medicine at the University of Paris took on the "study of the reaction of amino acids & sugar" in 1912. His work won several awards, including the French Academy of Medicine in 1914 and was rewarded with the reaction being named after him.

And though you might not be familiar with black garlic (at least tasting it) the reaction ( The Maillard Reaction) that created it you have tasted. Coffee roasting is a Maillard Reaction. And so is the browning of meats when grilled, crust that has darkened in pretzels, chocolate and even malted barley! The Maillard reaction is everywhere, at least when you are eating.

Understand that caramelization is not the same, though similar in many ways, Maillard is a reaction that involves the amino acids. Caramelization is pyrolysis of specific sugars. Pyrolysis is organic material exposed to high temperatures, such as lava coming in contact with a tree. Effectively char.

Simply, Maillard Reaction is the process of cooking meat to perfection versus my cooking on a BBQ grill and creating char.

Black Garlic Molasses tasting notes.

To the nose it smells like garlic. A lot like a jar of crushed garlic. With a hint of sweetness.

To the tastebuds it's a totally different sensation. It comes across you mouth like a sweet squeezable sensation that you will be sucking your cheeks in for more.

The first taste, in a big swig spoonful, is a sweetness that is not too sweet. It’s like a spoonful of sugar without being too sugary. And as the finish finishes and the sensation drifts away, the garlic flavor rolls around your mouth as you chase it moving your tongue up and down as your cheeks involuntarily move in and out! It is like nothing you have ever had at the same time being totally familiar.

And a little secret don't push the cork back in all the way.   Part way will keep the garlic sealed off from air but won't get the lip of the lid gooey.
