Albert Ménès salted Drôme garlic is a natural, unbleached product that is ready to use. Made in France, it contains no additives, so colour variations are possible, but they do not affect the quality of the product. Probably originating from Central Asia, garlic has been known since the dawn of time for its medicinal properties. Garlic is said have grown in one of the footprints left by the devil's feet when he left the Garden of Eden. The Crusaders contributed to its spread in Europe, where it was soon considered a miracle cure. Today, it is one of the essential flavours in Mediterranean gastronomy.
Easy to use, Drôme salted garlic is used as a finishing touch in cooking, replacing fresh garlic. When added for a minute, it subtly perfumes meat juices, such as a leg of lamb. It can also be used like mustard, with a small amount on the edge of a plate to delicately enliven meat dishes, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, a hot potato or a fondue.
