Garlic Scape Pesto

Garlic Scapes are the early stem and flower bud of a garlic bulb! Traditionally they were trimmed in order to let the garlic bulb grow, but now they're harvested as a coveted farmer's market special!

The scapes are edible, milder tasting than garlic and can be used interchangeably with green onions.

Save the Scapes with this delicious spread!
