Garlic Scapes

We're always interested in the unknown and unusual.  To testify to this statement we recently acquired fresh, locally grown garlic scapes.  These edible plants are similar to that of a green onion except with the strong garlic taste.

These scapes are the hardened stalk of a garlic plant that sprout up a month or so after the first few leaves have grown on the plant.  Most people don't know that these are edible and toss them into their compost pile thinking they're no good. 

So for the next few days, you'll be seeing plenty of these scapes garnishing our dishes... or possibly becoming a staple ingredient!  And remember, we're always willing to buy fresh, local, and even unusual items that could provide a new sense of adventure to any dining experience.
