This will be another item for my BBQ on Friday. Fresh garlic scapes. I'm deciding how to prepare them - pesto, sauteed, or garlic scape pizza....
Garlic scapes should be picked before they curl around to encourage formation of a larger garlic bulb. I've read that picking them well before they curl gives the most tender scapes. Last year mine were tasty, but tough. Next time I'm at my garden I'll pick all of my scapes. Some are curling back double and some are still straight.
