GARLIC SCAPE RECIPES
New Oxley Recipes - Bon Appetit!
Just when you think you can’t wait any longer for the seasons garlic harvest, miraculously garlic scapes appear. A scape is the seed stalk that grows upward then gently curves down and around to form a circle, an eloquent design created by Mother Nature.
The scapes have a mild garlic flavour, complementary to any dish that would be enhanced by garlic. Scapes can be stored for a couple of weeks in the refrigerator. Scapes tend to get tough or lose their mild garlic flavour when overcooked so handle gently.

Then harvest time finally comes - after months of weeding, and tending, and hoping and praying that the creek won't flood out the crop this year.
Once the garlic is pulled, cured and the greens topped, it's show time. What could be better than the aromatic, creamy goodness that comes from roasting a head of the good stuff and just smearing it all over fresh bread? Heaven!
