Garlic Scapes, YAY!

Garlic Scapes
Garlic Scapes are here! YAY!

Garlic Scapes are the flowering tops of garlic. While we wait for the garlic bulb to mature and fatten up. We snap them off the scapes, also known as garlic flowers. Delicious and tender, try them in stir fries, pesto, dressings, sauces; anywhere you might use garlic cloves or scallions.

And if you like, you can also use the scape to make Garlic Flavored oil, which you can drizzle on pasta, soup, salad, bread, and more.

Click here for the link for an easy and simple recipe for Garlic Flavored Oil.

Have an great organic feast!
