In the next 2 weeks we will be removing the garlic scape (shoots/tips) from the garlic plants. This process of removing the scapes will give more energy back to the plant to produce a bigger garlic bulb. What most people don't know that this part of the garlic is delicious. When uncooked it gives a mild garlic flavor and goes great with pastas, soups, and salads. For cooking, it is a sweet flavor and prepared similar to asparagus. Put some on the grill with olive oil....yum
So this year, try something new. You'll be glad you did.
