Elephant garlic like its name suggests refers to the fact that it looks like a very large garlic bulb that produces extra large cloves. It is not a true garlic as it belongs to the leek family.
It has a very medium- mild leek/garlic flavor and has sweet tones and hints of onion like taste. This makes it ideal for people who prefer a milder flavor. Elephant garlic is rich in Vitamin B9 and calcium and can be eaten raw in salads or can be cooked. Due to its very large size Elephant garlic is very easy to peel. We hand harvest our elephant garlic in July and then cure it for approx 4-6 weeks. Our unique sandy loam soil and proximity to the sea gives our elephant garlic its beautiful fresh slightly salty mild flavor. Our Drummond House Elephant Garlic takes 9 months to grow and a further 4-6 weeks drying before it is ready each year.
It is delicious roasted or sliced thinly like crisps, drizzle with some olive oil and seasoning and roasted in the oven for 2-4 minutes.
