Garlic Scapes!

Just arrived at Janssen’s Market – from Glenn Willow Orchards Avondale, PA

Garlic Scapes are great raw in salads or you can cook it like you would garlic or green onions. It definitely has a garlic taste, but it is milder than clove garlic, and even milder than bulb garlic.

Easy summer pasta: Mince a clove of garlic,  scape (chopped) along with some some purple spring onions.  Fry in a pan with a bit of extra-virgin olive oil.  Cook them for a few minutes, then tossed in some fresh thyme and fresh basil and served it over a bit of pasta.  Grate some Parmesan cheese over top of it and add a bit of sea salt and some freshly ground pepper. Add a green salad and you have a fabulous fresh dinner on the table in the time it takes to cook the pasta.
