FERMENTED GARLIC AND HONEY
Fermented garlic is a special treat of special flavour. It may come a bit weird at the start but once you will try it you will know why this is one of the most popular fermented food.
- Organic garlic
- Organic Honey – or local honey
Fermented garlic with honey preparation
Peel garlic cloves and place in a jar. You can use any size jar depending on how much you want to make. Fill the jar with garlic 3/4 of the way to the top. Pour honey over the garlic until it just covers the garlic. Mix the honey into the garlic until it covers it. The honey will get thinner over time. Cover with a secure lid.
Place in a cool dark place and turn or shake daily to make sure garlic is coated with the honey. This will help prevent the growth of Kahm yeast. This is a white layer that can appear on the food or on the top of the liquid. Kahm yeast is harmless but can make the garlic taste “off”. Let it ferment for 2 weeks, then it’ll be ready to eat!
You can leave it for up to a year on your counter or in a cabinet and the garlic will change colour and lose some of its spiciness. It will actually have a wonderful flavour that can taste like candy!
