Garlic Scapes

1 garlic rapes May 28Garlic Scapes

A garlic scape is the stalk that forms about a month or two before the garlic bulb. They are thin, curly, green, and grow from hardneck garlic plants. If left unharvested, the scapes eventually bloom flowers when the garlic plant fully matures. They taste like garlic–surprise –but they kind of look like scallions and can therefore be used in all kinds of creative cooking–or flower arrangements.
