Article Excerpt:

Scapes, let me count the ways I love thee.

This recipe couldn't be more simple or more delicious.  And it will make your kitchen smell great too.

Garlic scapes are green plants that grown out of garlic bulbs.  These unruly, spirally, rather rebellious little things have a pungent, garlicky flavor, and a texture similar to a cross between a green bean and asparagus. They can be eaten raw, roasted, sauteed, fried, pureed in soups, pestos, and hummus, or whatever else you can imagine. I love scapes, and look forward to the short window of time in early summer when you can find them at the farmers market.  I saw them last weekend and promptly purchased two beautiful bunches.  Hey, scape season is brief; we must take advantage of it while we can!  These little darlings are only around for about a month or so in early summer, so eat up. I was even more excited to see scapes forming on the garlic in my garden.
