Mexican Garlic



There's actually many varieties of garlic grown in Mexico (e.g. Chileno garlic), and "Mexican Garlic" isn't even the name of a specific, agreed-upon cultivar of garlic.

Some people equate it with Spanish Roja Garlic. Others equate it with, and sell it as, a garlic that has fat cloves with pinkish-purple skins, and a mild, somewhat sweet flavour.

This last garlic is used in Tex-Mex and Southwestern cooking in America.

Please share this information with your friends. They may love it.

Bon mots

"Nothing rekindles my spirits, gives comfort to my heart and mind, more than a visit to Mississippi... and to be regaled as I often have been, with a platter of fried chicken, field peas, collard greens, fresh corn on the cob, sliced tomatoes with French dressing... and to top it all off with a wedge of freshly baked pecan pie."

-- Craig Claiborne (American food writer. 4 September 1920 – 22 January 2000)
