Black garlic: Old, ugly and delicious

Mark McEwan read about rich and luscious black garlic in the spring and ordered some online from the United States to sell in his gourmet market, McEwan, when it launched in June. He has already sold 60 pounds.

Loblaw Co. is poised to add black garlic to the produce roster at some of its stores. Whole Foods marketing manager Jim Empey is also keen to offer it at its Yorkville and Oakville locations.

“People have really taken to it here,” says McEwan’s executive assistant Jordie McTavish. “Every bite has so much flavour.”
