Making black garlic is easy. So here’s how:
1. gallon of the mason jar with metal lid
2. 6-12 pcs. Whole garlic bulbs
3. 4 oz. of the jelly jar where you can keep the garlic from secreting juices
4. A dehydrator
First, put the 4 oz of jelly jar upside down inside the gallon jar. Add garlic bulbs as long as it fits into the jar. Make sure that they are not touching the bottom of the jar because the juice that will be collected will make the garlic soggy. Having soggy garlic can change the taste of the black garlic.
Tighten the 2-piece canning lid and seal the jar. Put it inside the dehydrator. Set it at 140-145 degrees, be sure to set the right temperature because it can affect the garlic later on.
Leave the dehydrator for 30-40 days. Check the garlic if it turns black and it won’t taste like garlic. If you can taste the garlic flavor, leave it longer. You can place many jars inside the dehydrator that can fit inside.
After 40 days, you can use the BLACK GARLIC MACHINE to maintain a temperature of 140 degrees.
Once it is incubated, you can remove the lid and pour the black liquid from the bottom and see if the garlic is black enough to remove.
If the clove is too soft, return the bulb inside the jar and leave it in the dehydrator without the lid. Make sure to check the cloves periodically to avoid the hardening of the cloves.
