Solo Garlic (Single Clove Garlic)

I went out to get some garlic and I did. I came home with these beauties - Solo Garlic. I knowwWWwW, right? When did garlic ever look so enticing!

It's nothing like the ones we usually buy ... *sniff, sniff* mild, no strong garlicky smell. I would describe the texture as something in between an onion and the regular garlic.

I did some digging around the internet and discovered that Solo Garlic originates from Yunnan, China. Garlic is generally associated with being great for reducing high blood pressure and cholesterol. I assume the same can be said for Solo Garlic. There is a lack of specifics in write-ups on this particular variety of garlic, leaving my curiosity unanswered.

Cook-wise, I have yet to bake this whole although it has been suggested as the ideal way to appreciate this garlic. Instead, I have been including it into stir-fry dishes, usually in finely chopped bits. It tastes just as good so I don't think it compromised the yummy-ness of our food much. 

My personal opinion? It could be a hit with many people because of its milder smell ... plus, it doesn't cost a bomb.
