I went to the local Farmer's Market last Saturday and bought some organic garlic. I didn't think to ask what variety it was, but after putting it in my ratatouille yesterday, I'm curious. I used 3 huge cloves of it, got barely even a whisper of a hint of garlic flavor and it, seemingly, had a very high sugar content (very, very sticky when I was mincing it). The heads are small, consisting of only four or five large cloves and the outside is pinky-purple. Did I wind up with a very young variant of Elephant or is it another variety?
