What are some uses for elephant garlic? Is it used exaclty like ordinary grocery store garlic?

Thanks, Peggy! We love having our own homegrown veggies. As far as the garlic, this is our first year growing the elephant garlic. It is milder than regular garlic so I tend to use more of it in cooking. We had some small bulbs that were only
1-bulb cloves, just one round clove without any divisions. I treated it like an onion, slicing it up and saute'ing it.

Elephant garlic can also be used in the lactofermented veggies as a flavoring. Just slice some up or use whole and put in the bottom of your jar or mixed within the layers of veggies.

Thanks for your questions,
