Old Shaw Farm: Chris' Garlic Scape Recipes

Old Shaw Farm: Chris' Garlic Scape Recipes

Sounds good. But what are "scapes"?

1 comment:

  1. Scapes are the flower stalks found on all members of the Allium family including onions, leeks, chives, and garlic. In garlic, the scapes curl as they grow, and ultimately straighten, and then grow little seed-like bulbils. Many garlic producers remove the scapes to enhance bulb development, and many farmers waste these flower tops. But in Vermont it seems that many farmers--especially those with CSA memberships--wisely keep and distribute the scapes.

    Garlic scapes are yummy and make for excellent pesto.
