Balsamic Roast Garlic with Thyme

We ate brunch at the Two Pups café in Francis Street in Dublin and had what they called ‘black garlic’ with a poached egg salad. We asked them how to make it so this is an approximation of the chef’s recipe (to whom we owe a debt of thanks). Squeeze the bulbs and eat it on bread, add it to salad dressings and use to garnish and roast meat or vegetable and to accompany poached eggs on toasted sourdough bread with rocket leaves.
