According to a family member, who is a garlic growing champ, I did indeed plant a hardneck variety of garlic and the growth is an edible “scape”.
Good thing, because I’d already eaten them.
They were tasty!
I sauteed them in coconut oil with chopped zucchini and used it to top pizza.
They have a mild garlic/onion flavor and the texture is reminiscent of asparagus. I used the bud part too and it was a little tough, I had pickled scapes over the weekend that only used the stalky part so I probably should have omitted the bud.
Next time I think I would just throw them in the jar when making pickled ramps and/or radishes.
Have you cooked with scapes?
