About: Garlic scapes are the immature flower stalks of garlic. They are harvested early in the spring to help garlic grow, but are available only a few weeks at that time- so get them while you can! Their flavor is very similar to garlic but without the garlic “bite”.
Storage: You can keep garlic scapes in a loosely wrapped plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to about 2 weeks.
Tips: Use in substitution of garlic or scallions. They are easy and fabulous to cook with! Sauté chopped scapes for a couple minutes in olive oil, then add lemon juice, salt and pepper – and voila – you have a sauce to toss with pasta or use as a spread.
