Garlic Scapes

Storage Tip: Refrigerate in plastic. Rinse just before using.

Tasty Tidbits: Garlic scapes are the curly shoots the garlic plant sends up that ends up flowering if you don’t harvest it. They have a mild garlicky taste and can be used in the same ways you’d use garlic. Think of them like a garlic-flavored scallion. Add them raw to your salad, or cook into soup, eggs, pasta dishes, mashed potatoes, stir fry, or make them into a pesto. There is a HUGE list of possibilities for these little treasures online, including freezing instructions.
