Gourmet Heirloom Scape Powder
Garlic scapes are the edible flower stems that grow from the center of the garlic plant in early June. Fresh scapes have a wonderful, mild but zippy garlic flavor, and can be used raw (like scallions) to liven up a summer salad, or to make an amazing sauces, relishes and dressings. They can be grilled, pickled or sautéed too! Since this delicacy is only available fresh in early summer, we decided to slow-process dehydrate some and crush it up into powder so we can enjoy the delicate flavor of scapes all year round.
Our pure, gourmet scape powder is made from heirloom garlic scapes, and truly deepens the flavor of any dish it's added to. It has a mild, sweet, roasted green garlic flavor that is also slightly buttery or nutty as a result of the slow drying process. This is the difference between our scape powder and those that are freeze-dried. It is especially well-suited to soups, dips and pesto, mashed potatoes, grill rubs, sprinkled on pizza, and added to salad dressings. Our latest, and now most favorite, use for this scape powder is in meatloaf (vegetarian or regular) and meatballs -- either Swedish or with spaghetti!
We don't add any preservatives or anti-caking agents to our Gourmet Heirloom Scape Powder, so even though it might clump slightly after a while and need to be broken up a little each time before you use it, you'll get nothing but lovely flavor to enjoy!
