How to use cooked: Put in your eggs, beans, potatoes, pasta, soup, stir fry, burrito. Sautee for a minute, add salt and serve as your pasta topping. You may want to cut off the bottom part if it is tough, and the tip. You can use the flower part in your food if you like. They are great grilled whole too!
How to use raw: Slice thinly and add to a green salad, potato salad, hummous, tabouli, tuna salad, dips.
Make pesto (puree with olive oil and salt) and spread on bread, sandwiches, pizza crust.

Scapes will store for 2 months in the fridge in a plastic bag!!
We will have generous bags for $1.50 (or $1.25 if you bring your own bag).
We'll also have some cucumber and squash plants, flower starts and a few other plants for your garden.
If you grow your own- Here's how to harvest Your Scapes- (Hardnecks only) Clip or break the central seed stalk when they make a loop, or shortly afterwards (usually in June.) Taking the scapes off will give you larger bulbs. (However your bulbs will store longer if you keep the scape on.) Eat the scapes! Harvest time comes about 3 weeks after scapes. Stay tuned for a post on when to harvest garlic (or search posts from previous years)
