Love garlic Scapes, the green tops of the garlic plant – long, serpentine like stem is somewhat sweet with a mild garlic flavor without the harsh bite that cloves sometimes offer. It gives a little kick to anything you add into; stews, salads, pasta, stir fry or roasted. The possibilities are endless.
Garlic shoots also called garlic Scapes are a gourmet delight and one of those rare delicacies that are in season only for a few weeks. They are milder than garlic cloves but when cooked, the Scapes become sweeter with a subtle garlic undertone with a texture similar to that of asparagus or string beans. They’re delicious; crunchy, sweet without being too garlicky.
