Care & Storage:
Store in a plastic bag in the fridge. They’ll last in this manner for several weeks.
Garlic scapes are the immature flower stalks of the garlic plant. They are removed as they develop so the garlic puts all its energy into the garlic bulb rather than flower production.
Easy Prep Ideas:
The garlicky flavor in scapes can be quite strong. Start out using them sparingly until you determine what is the right amount for you! Use them any way you would green onions. Add sliced scapes to any stir fry, slice and sprinkle over any pasta, or slice and cook in almost any sauce recipe. Great in guacamole, salads, and fresh salsa, or on bruschetta and pizza. An excellent addition to stocks and many Asian dishes.
