Elephant Garlic Scapes are the long vibrant green, straight flowering stalk that grows from each bulb of our Elephant Garlic. Each garlic scape is topped with a flowering head also know as a spathe and only one scape grows per plant.
Garlic scapes are an excellent source of Vitamins A&C as well as fiber. The Elephant garlic scape has a strong-medium fresh garlic flavour when eaten raw and a milder gentle garlic flavour when cooked. The scape and the flowering head are completely edible raw and cooked. The flowering bud outer leaf will turn a crispy and golden color as it dries out but still adds flavor and is absolutely delicious added into any dish. Only one scape per plant grows and these are handpicked each day. They are a wonderful seasonal delicacy. Try them in a saute, pesto, roasted, pickled, stir fried, raw in salads, piazza toppings or risottos. They also freeze very well and are a beautiful fresh unique vegetable.
