Jinxiang Garlic is a white garlic grown in Jinxing County in China, where the loamy soil and good air favourably influence the growing conditions. Jinxing has been known as the Garlic capital of China since the 1980s, and the export of this unique product has taken up 70% of the total garlic market in the world in the past 20 years. On the exterior, the garlic has a skin that is brightly white in colour and is of a standard, oblate shape. On the interior, there are from eight to eleven cloves with a slightly pungent fragrance and a mildly hot flavour. In some varieties of Jinxiang garlic, the contents of trace elements like selenium can be 60 times more than those of standard garlic.
Use it as a seasoning, as a condiment or pair it with onions, tomato, ginger, bread and olive oil.
