Garlic - Elephant (Allium Ampeloprasum)
A large form of garlic, with a mild flavour (it's actually more closely related to a leek, than to true garlic) - also going under the name of 'Giant' or 'Levant' garlic. Heads can weight as much as 450g/1 lb; but from a culinary point of view it can be substituted for garlic, whenever this is called for. See 'Garlic'
