I bought some Black Garlic, now afraid of it. How do you use it?

I got some Black Garlic recently and can't figure out what to do with it. I've checked some recipes online but curious if anybody has found any wild ways to use it.

I'm a big fan of using otherwise weird ingredients in normal recipes for that edge factor. I put Worcestershire in my spaghetti sauce, pesto in my tomato pizza sauce, coffee in my steak marinades, powdered Wasabi in my burgers, Gruyere in my lasagne instead of mozzarella. But I can't seem to nail down this Black Garlic on how to use it. I've had it sitting now for 3 months unused.

It's so expensive I want to use it well. Anybody use this to good effect? If so, how?

      I'm a big fan of black garlic so expect some of my suggestions to be in one of the links above. Favourites? Risotto and placed under chicken skin for roasting. It also makes a great tapenade.
