Garlic scapes are probably the most fun harvest of the year. (As soulemama demonstrates, you can wear them as you work). They are certainly a bonus to growing garlic. Does anyone else find that they creep up on you? One day, I wonder – where are the scapes already? And the next thing I know, the curls are practically dancing off the plants.
Last year I simply used them in my cooking to accompany garlic. This year I was a bit more ambitious. I put up six or so jars of garlic scape pesto and made two jars of very fun pickled garlic scapes – all from forty-four garlic plants.
