Harvesting Garlic Scapes

Garlic scapes

Man, we are overrun with garlic scapes—the tender young tops of garlic plants…they’re delicious! Cutting them off encourages garlic to grow bigger, but, that seems to be in debate as well. Either way, I’m not worried about that, since I like the taste of them so much.

Good thing, because our CSA (from Growing Washington) keeps including them in our weekly boxes as well. I’ve been putting them in lots of things, but mainly we’ve been grilling them alongside asparagus or throwing them in with foil packets of green beans. Next year: pesto!
