You need to keep it at between 130-150 for at least 10 days - preferably 40 days.

In tin foil, on the car's manifold......... Of course you could just hold it up to your monitor when select people post, that should keep it warm enough.

You could probably produce that little bit of heat with an incandescent light bulb...like an easy bake oven.

Maybe make the "oven" out of a cardboard box and aluminum foil.

Here you go:

How to make it

Make sure the rice cooker can be set to a warm setting.
Place the entire garlic bulb inside a rice cooker and allow the garlic ferment for 10 days. Try not to disturb the garlic during the fermentation.
After 10 days, Black garlic is placed on wire racks to cool and dry over the course of one week. Again. Make sure the location should be dry & cool, no direct sunlight.
Enjoy the wonderful and tasty treat of home brew black garlic!


Aged Black Garlic Recipe


You could package this up and sell it at your roadside stand. Here is the Bay Area, 4 ounces are around $6.

Is this the Kim-Chee thread?

Any veggy low heat slow cooked for that long is going Kim-Chee.

I think a crock pot would be safer.

I had an experience where I carefully read the directions to the easy bake oven..plugged it in...and the lightbulb blew up. I replaced the lightbulb (after checking the direction) and...exact same thing happened. Again.

It will be a sad day when the 'easy bake oven' is replaced by a chinese florescent bulb cardboard box. The brownies will be gooey for ever.

I'll bet people will buy it. Figure out a way to ship it, you can sell even more.
