General Garlic Scapes Useage
The scape is actually the part of the garlic that shoots up a flower in the late spring. Only hard neck varieties of garlic produce a flower like this. You can use the scape as you would normally use garlic. Chop up the entire green stem and sauté with a stir fry, throw it into eggs, salad dressing or a soup. It is a delicious way to enjoy garlic!
