garlic scape

    Newer Older

    we just started getting our summer vegetables from a CSA vegetable share... it's a new thing for us and i was hoping to photograph everything, but life has kind of gotten in the way of that.

    i had never heard of or seen garlic scapes before; they are the flowers that grow above ground on a head of garlic, and apparently they need to be removed for the heads to grow as large as possible. we had them chopped up on new potatoes with butter and sour cream, pretty basic.

      i've had them battered and deep fried -- not too bad. a little like fried onion straws.

      I got some in my CSA share too (https://farm3.static.flickr.com/2424/3661180635_c69f1d70d9_b.jpg). I made a bean dip recipe from them that I found in the New York Times. Turned out very good. I also tried chopping them up and putting them in a bean & tomato salad...also very good.
