Elephant Garlic is actually a variant of a garden leek, but has a garlicky bite to it, but less pungent and often less juicy than other varieties of garlic. Its large-sized cloves make it perfect for making garlic chips or roasting whole.
Note: sometimes the outer layer of the cloves will fall off or be cracked enough to expose the flesh of the clove, which causes the outside of the clove to harden a bit. But don't worry, this garlic is perfectly safe and delicious to eat!
