Fresh Garlic Scapes

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the greatest things about growing garlic is the harvest of the flowering stalk of the garlic plant…the scape.  Garlic scapes have so many uses as they make a wonderful pesto, are tasty when grilled, do very well in a hummus, and they can be used as you would green onions in stir fries or soups.  They have a very light, garlic/onion flavor and are one of the true delicacies of the garden.

I picked a bunch of scapes this morning and this will be the only time I’ll be offering these this year as they are a one time harvest crop.  Scapes are difficult to find at farmer’s markets as you usually have to be first in line to have a chance at buying them.  I put a baker’s dozen in each bag and have them priced at $5 a bag.  E-mail me at kctomatotimes@gmail.com and I’ll tell you how to pick them up.
