Prickly Pear Black Garlic

I really liked the regular black garlic but I knew I could do more with it. I searched Google for other ways to make it but came up with nothing, so I had to wing it. Being a fan of Prickly Pear tea, jam, syrup, etc…(and also having a big jug of it on hand) it was my first thought when deciding what to mix with it. You can see the difference in the outer color, the prickly pear is much darker and has a shine to it. While I could see and taste a difference I was not satisfied. For the next next batch I adjusted my process and got the garlic to absorb more of the flavoring and color.
