Uses: Garlic scapes are the stocks that grow from hardnecked garlic plants. Because they are harvested when fresh basil is abundant, Garlic Scape Pesto is a great thing to do with scapes. You can also use them in stir fry in place of garlic, or you can try pickling, grilling or roasting them. The garlicky flavor of scapes is milder than garlic and can die away if the they are overcooked.
