    My composting wood pile is now a lovely 61 C, so i reckon it might work ok if I put some garlic in a mason jar for 30 days or so.

    I keep meaning to buy a rice cooker for this. I love garlic in all shapes and sizes... and colours

    Let us know how you get on MWB!

    One thing you must be careful of when using a rice cooker is the garlic getting dry. I had some that was black but as hard as nails. Curtesy of my coffee grinder, I now have black garlic powder! Best to check on a regular basis that the garlic has not lost too much moisture. I sprinkle some water on the garlic every seven days. The commercial units are (expensive) humidity controlled to prevent drying.
