GARLIC SCAPES

The narrow stalk that forms as a seed head from the garlic plant. They are garlicky but with a fresh "green" taste. They can be used in any dish where one usually uses garlic but wants a brighter, more complex garlic flavor with less bite than one would get from standard garlic cloves. Garlic scapes work well in soups, salads, stews, salsas, dips, guacamole, omelettes, frittatas, marinades, pesto, salad dressings, and stir-fry. Scapes are also delightful when cooked into sauces, chopped up and used as a garlicky pizza topping or used to make toasted garlic bread.
