Garlic Scapes Demystified
So what exactly IS a garlic scape you might ask….it’s the flower bud of a garlic plant! That little bulby thing at the top would eventually become a flower if it was left attached to the plant, but it’s often removed so more energy can be directed to fattening up the garlic cloves. Plus they taste fantastic—just like garlic. You can use them as a flavoring in most anything you would use garlic in.
