‘Scape into the Kitchen
Garlic scapes are a shoot that whimsically spirals from the garlic plant’s leafy tops and, if left to grow, will flower. We snap these off in late June so that the energy of the plant goes into growing the bulb and not the flower. The scapes are snappy in texture with a bright, mild garlic flavor. They hold well in the fridge, so feel free to take your time and get creative with their use. If you need some ideas, read Bon Appetit’s “10 Things to Do With Garlic Scapes: The Best Veg You’re Not Cooking Yet.”
