Garlic Scapes are the tops of a “hard neck” garlic variety before the bulbs are developed. These shoots are 10-12 inches long but with a natural curl.
Cook them as you would asparagus, sautéed or steamed. Scapes offer a wide range of uses from soups, stir fries, salads to garnishes. Their flavor makes a perfect harmony when mixed with grilled summer vegetables and they make a tasty pesto sauce. Stored in the refrigerator they can last up to three weeks.
