Today I picked a handful of garlic scapes in the garden. They are “cool” the way they twist and curl. The mild garlic flavor is a preview to the tangy bulbs still growing.
The buds and the tips are a bit tough/fibrous so they were composted but the stems are crunchy when fresh. I will also be sautéing them for another meal making them tender and making pesto to freeze since garlic scapes are a short season.
