It's that time of year to harvest the garlic scapes. It may be tempting to let your garlic flower, the beautiful purple globe of petals the bulb produces are beautiful. The flowers are great bee attractor, but if you want the energy of the plant to produce a bountiful garlic bulb it is best to resist this temptation. Cut off those scapes!
Garlic scapes make a great culinary addition to any kitchen. They are delicious!!
I tossed them with olive oil, salt and pepper, and then roasted them for 10 minutes. The garlic scapes made a perfect side dish to our dinner.
