What are garlic Scapes?
They are a very Seasonal Delicacy that appears mid summer, usually for less than a few weeks. Farmers Markets may have them or if you have a local Garlic Grower they may sell them too. We grow our own Garlic so we get to enjoy these BONUS garlicy greens once a year. You could sub green onions or shallots for a similar look. You could also add peas or broccoli to this dish.
