If you haven’t tried Garlic Scapes, you’re missing out. An often-overlooked allium, Garlic Scapes offer a fresher, greener taste than the actual garlic bulb itself.
So, what are they, exactly?
Garlic Scapes are the tender stem and flower bud of a hardneck garlic plant. Scapes first grow straight out of the garlic bulb, then coil. When harvested, they look like long, curly green beans.
The good news? They’re versatile and can be used in a number of ways. Consider grilling, roasting or sautéing them, for starters. Garlic Scapes also make a great side dish or burger topping.
Here’s a couple of recipes to get you started and luckily enough you can find plenty this week from Wild RootsFarm. Brown Bottle Farm and Farm D’ICI.
