Fresh Garlic Scapes
Out of stock
Garlic scapes are the delicious, edible flowers that grow from the center of hardneck garlic plants. Scapes have a wonderful, mild garlic flavor, and when fresh they have a crunchy texture like green beans or asparagus. They can be used raw like scallions to liven up a summer salad, or to make amazing sauces, relishes, salsas and dressings. They can be simply grilled (our favorite), pickled or sautéed too!
Scapes are a fleeting, seasonal delicacy because they're only available for about two weeks in June annually. When refrigerated in a little bit of water (much like you would store asparagus), scapes can keep for 2-3 weeks! They also *freeze, dehydrate, and freeze dry very well.
After picking in mid-June, we sell our scapes fresh for local pickup in the greater Saint Paul/Minneapolis metro area, so get yours now while they last!

*Freezing garlic scapes is a wonderful way to extend their freshness and flavor, but even when frozen in vacuum sealed bags then thawed, they will lose a little of the crisp, crunchy texture they have when fresh. They will still taste great and will be in great shape for many uses though!
