Garlic scapes are the young shoots that grow from garlic bulbs in the springtime. We prepare these unique vegetables by pickling them with dill seeds and chili flakes. They add an attractive and tasty element to charcuterie boards. They are an awesome addition to Caesars and Bloody Marys (don’t forget to add a little pickle brine as well!). We also love to chop them up for potato salad, tartar sauce, and other cold dishes. Of course, you can always count on them as a late night snack right from the jar when you’re craving something a little sour and salty.
The garlic scapes are grown locally at Silver Spring Farm, an initiative of the The Ottawa-Carleton Association for People with Developmental Disabilities. Silver Spring Farm is run by volunteers and raises funds for their programming. We have been purchasing from them since opening the business in spring 2013.
