The Garlic Scape fairy came to my house the other day and gave us this.
If you’ve never tried garlic scapes, you’ve never lived. Their potential is endless.
And my personal favorite, Garlic Scape Pesto.
Half a big bowlful of garlic scapes, chopped up coarsely
2 cups grated parmesan
1.5 cups olive oil
Couple tbsp of lemon juice
1 cup walnuts
Using a food processor or immersion blender, grind and blend it all together until it’s a uniform chunkiness.
Then you’re done. I know – whaaaat? It’s really that easy.
Put it on pasta or crackers, use it in recipes (spaghetti or bruschetta anyone?), eat it by the spoonful. Whatever.
Also, garlic scape recipes freeze unusually well. Go to your local farmer’s market or garlic farm and get some. Make a big batch, freeze it in portions and you’ll have yumminess all year ’round.
