Garlic Scapes

Finally, I found something I haven’t been able to get a hold of for decades: garlic scapes. The young farmer at the farmer’s market who was selling them was stunned that I could identify them. They taste amazing in garden salads. I used to pick them at my first husband’s dacha back in Ukraine. I hated that darn place (although it was a beautiful huge house with a real fireplace and a big garden), and the garlic scapes were the only thing to reconcile me with being there.

A big bunch cost me a strange price of one dollar seventy six cents.

  1. Damn, never seen these things before, even in farmers markets. What do they taste like? Milder garlicky flavor or something else entirely?
