I've decided to start adding my own comments just to keep myself company. We didn't have the sockeye tonight; we went out to dinner at a crazy great place.

We made some garlic scape pesto the other day with our scapes and it was wonderful with pita bread. I didn't have enough left to try it on pasta. Let me know if you do:)

Did you see this?

: D

Mora, you're a genius.

Made a garlic scape pesto last night to universal acclaim. OK, I liked it, and so did Davy and Jack.

Big pot blanched the scapes (thank you, Farid!) for 4 minutes. Drained. Put into the food processor with salt, olive oil, and grated romano cheese. Delish. And very subtle. Our scape season is almost over but I'm hoping for one more batch. It was really great smeared on roasted tuna belly.

Thank you for posting this. I'm growing garlic for the first time and knew there was something I could do with the scapes (I didn't even know what they were called until now) but didn't even know where to start.

I just had grilled scapes for dinner tonight, following your directions. INCREDIBLE!

really appreciate your info... esp. as new garlic about to saute' my few scapes with soy sausages to have with navy beans for a pesto maker I'm also grateful for variations on the garden options. bon appetit-Cate

Was fortunate to find scapes at the local market. made a cashew/scape pesto. YUM! Can't wait to try them on the grill. Thanks

Sauted scapes with Chinese fermented soy bean cakes: delicious.

Thanks for the great advice. Can't wait to try it tomorrow.

I have some that have been in the fridge a while. They're not slimy or anything, so I'm going to grill them before I put our burgers on. I'm worried they''ll be tough, but I'll try to remember to let you know how they come out.

I have been trying to get hardneck garlic so I can grow it for a while. Anyone have recommendations of type/source?

I snapped the stems like I do with asparagus, because parts of them seemed tough. I left the flower heads on -- they're the best part! Yay grilled garlic scapes!!
