elephant garlic


Elephant garlic, or wild leek, is actually not a member of the garlic family (allium sativum) at all but is closer to the leek, to the flavour of which it bears a close resemblance. It looks like garlic, having a swollen bulb at the base, and roasts well. It will keep well if hung in a warm, dry place.
