If you’ve never tried scapes before, now is the time! Like fiddleheads (which I haven’t had the courage to buy), these don’t have an extended season. They’re actually the tops of garlic and are delicious tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper and grilled. We’ve also enjoyed them in stir frys (cut them into 1 inch or so pieces for that) and in pesto. I’m sure I’ve only scratched the surface of uses, but the good news is that it’s early in the season.
If you have a favorite way of fixing scapes, please let me know!
