EXPERIMENT! Making Black Garlic in Compost Bin



My daughter who is a culinary student told me about the magic of black garlic. I decided to try to make some.

I didn't like the idea of using a rice cooker and keeping it on for 30 days in or near my house but found a video showing it made in a compost bin.

To make black garlic in a compost bin, the temperature need to reach 140 degrees. I achieve those temperatures and thought I'd try it out.

I trimmed the garlic heads and placed them in a mason jar. Then, I buried the mason jar in my compost bin.

Now, I just need to wait 30 days and see how it turns out.

I'll give you an update then!!!
