Holy Single-Clove Garlic (Batman)!

Have you ever heard of single-clove garlic?

It's also known as solo garlic, monobulb garlic, single bulb garlic, even pearl garlic.  

Well I have.  But only recently.  :)

At first, I expected them (as you might) to be of inferior quality, but they were fresh, juicy, and very flavourful.  I mean, not as eye-stingingly pungent as some garlic bulbs I've had, but really, really decent.  And more garlic-y flavour than other 'fringe' varieties (like elephant garlic... which is actually not even really garlic BTW).

All the gorgeousness of garlic, with none of the pain-in-the-ass paper peeling!

I definitely recommend this variety; the amount of garlic I go through sometimes the peeling and cutting of the garlic is the longest part of the meal!  Anything that helps with prep time is OK by me.

Plus they're ever so pretty!
