Garlic (E)Scapes

Garlic is one of the most versatile vegetables out there. From 20 clove garlic chicken, to fresh pickled garlic, these delicious tidbits are used in so many dishes. But did you know that you can use garlic scapes too?

Garlic scapes are flower stems that grow from the tops of hardneck garlic. They are garlicky and spicy! They can be used in pesto, made into a butter garlic compound for pan fried fish, as toppings on pizza, and even dried for soup. Come grab some from the farm stand to start your experimenting!
