sugar snap peas
drunken woman frizzy headed lettuce
curious about garlic scapes?
here's what casey has to say about them:
the incredible flowering tops of our Magic Garlic plants.
Hard neck varieties of garlic send up a "flower",
which actually turns into a tiny bulb of garlic,
suspended in the air on a curly, whimsical stem.
Though it would likely be impossible to grow
a decent-sized garlic bulb from the tiny bulb it makes,
you can certainly eat them before they've fully ripened,
as chefs and savvy cooks the world over have discovered.
To eat scapes,
you can either chop them finely and saute them
like you would garlic (adding fantastic flavor to any dish),
or you can keep the flower part whole
and saute it alone or with other veggies.
It's kinda like a big, garlic-flavored asparagus stem...
in fact, the two make perfect grilling companions!
