The Scapes are in!



I just picked up a bunch of garlic scapes from my local farmers market.  I have never used them before but the lovely gal I bought them from had an amazingly tasty pesto of just 4 simple ingredients made from the scapes for us to try.  It sounds so easy...perfect for this late start to dinner (it's 9pm! who's the adult in charge here?!)
 
here's her recipe:

1 bunch garlic scapes, chopped
olive oil (a few glugs)
salt
pepper

puree in a food processor

I don't have a food processor so I'll try it with my stick blender???

I'll let you know how it goes!

  1. Mmmmmmmm scapes! They're also awesome just cut into 1" long pieces and stir fried - we tend to do them with tofu and asparagus or broccoli. They are definitely one of the best flavors ever.
