Someone asked me if I liked Elephant garlic. I realized I'd never had it LOL.
Up until this point I would have said I never met an allium I didn't like.
I tried it raw. I didn't care for it. Have to feed it to the gang and see what the consensus is. DH did notice that is wasn't garlic as usual. "Is this one of the heirloom garlics you grew honey? No it's called Elephant garlic. Oh. Well I think I like regular better".
One of my favorite ways to eat garlic is to make toast. Chop garlic fairly small and spread on top. garlic toast. It is obviously an allium in flavor. It has a slight secondary undertone to it that is not disgusting or anything, just unpleasant to me. Probably much like some people don't care for the after taste of stevia.
Next I tried it cooked. Just slightly in a little margarine. The after taste is muted but still present. And I guess the main thing...is I want garlic to taste like garlic. This really is a different taste all together.
It was better than raw, but I don't think I'll grow it again unless Mom and Dad are really into it. In which case they have a lot more room than I do anyway. With all the varieties of "real" garlic out there to try. I'm not
loosing out on anything.
I'd like to know how you others describe it. Whether you liked it or not etc.
