These have got to be one of the greatest treats of the garden – garlic scapes!
Not only are they an early opportunity to get your fresh garlic fix but you must do it so that your garlic bulbs get even better tasting!
It is like pruning, snipping back so that the plant will have more energy to put into it’s root. Good for the garlic and a delicious snack for us! (Sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do 🙂 )
We’ll cut the scapes up and cook with it the same as we do with cloves of garlic but our favourite way to use it, because it’s milder, is adding it fresh to salads!
