Toum is Arabic for garlic which is exactly what this product is: a potent and flavorful garlic condiment with multiple uses. The garlic is emulsified with a light tasting oil until thick and creamy. Toum is an excellent marinade for roasted vegetables and meats, and can be used as a condiment for fried foods, burgers, sandwiches or hot dogs. It is a great way to have garlic without peeling or chopping. Every garlic lover needs this in their fridge!
