Scapes are the tall stems and unopened flower buds of certain hard-neck varieties of garlic. It’s important to snip them off before the flowerheads mature, so the plant will direct more energy into developing its own garlic bulb. Then of course, eat the scapes! My favorite way is this pesto, which accompanies pasta, chicken, salmon, potato salad, and burgers beautifully. [by Kresha Faber]
