I got some lovely garlic scapes in my CSA bundle from Roxbury Farm last week, and finally got around to making Will Weaver's garlic scapes recipe that we featured in the Kitchen Garden department of Mother Earth News a couple years ago. Man, what a treat! The recipe seems simple, however the flavors are anything but! If you can get your hands on some garlic scapes from a local farm while they're in season, be sure to try this recipe.

I came across another intriguing recipe, for garlic scape pesto, but haven't tried it yet. If you know of more ways to use scapes, by all means, share the love! Just post your ideas and recipes in the comments section below.

Garlic scape pesto is awesome! It has a really strong garlic flavor so if you aren't a garlic lover I recommend that you not try it. I also like to chop up the scapes and add to stir fry.
