There will be an average 9 cloves per bulb. The cloves will be smaller than that of garlic normally sold in UK or North American grocery stores.
The cloves have pinkish brown skin, a flesh that is more starchy than it is crunchy.
The taste is strong at first in the mouth, then mellow.
The cloves don’t need peeling before use, as the skin is very thin. Just crush or chop and use.
If substituting North American garlic for garlic in a recipe actually written in Thailand, use half as much.
