Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is 47 days before Easter Sunday so varies each year and was seen as the last opportunity to use up eggs and fats before fasting.
We would love to see you get creative with Balsajo Black Garlic this pancake day so we have two delicious ideas to share with you.
Something sweet and mouthwateringly delicious is this recipe from our friends at The Garlic Farm.
Black Garlic Chocolate Sauce:
Take equal measures of sugar, water and cocoa powder, add one clove of black garlic (make a paste by crushing the black garlic with a knife on a hard surface). Whisk together and simmer in a pan. For a thicker sauce leave on the heat for a few moments longer. Serve over warm pancakes.
Or if you fancy something a little different how about some moreish savoury Seafood Pancakes from The Glen House?
Black Garlic Dipping Sauce:
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar (I used apple wine vinegar on this occasion)
1 spring onion, finely chopped
2 cloves black garlic, finely chopped (or minced if you prefer)
½ tsp chili pepper flakes (optional)
Good dash of honey.
Mix the ingredients for the dipping sauce and give it a really good stir to combine the flavours and set aside.
If you have any different ways to use Black Garlic with your pancakes we would love to see it, so share with us on our social media channels the best pancakes might even get a tub of our peeled cloves sent to them so come on, what are you waiting for!
