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 email@example.com and I’ll tell you how to pick them up.
