Fresh Jumbo Elephant Garlic

Native of South East Asia is best described as an over-extended leek with garlic tendencies. Its Latin name, allium ampeloprasum, signifies that it is not a true garlic (allium sativum) but it has many endearing qualities nevertheless. It has a mild nutty flavour with salad onion and garlic backgrounds. Its pretensions as a garlic can sometimes be justified due to the sheer enormity of each clove, so lending flavour by sheer weight of garlic used. Roasting and baking are ideal as its size ensures that even robust cooking cannot decimate it.
