In Season Now: Garlic Scapes

Ivan Rocambole Scapes from BC Garlic Growers

Garlic scapes are the most delicious and versatile seasonal garlic product. They differ in shape, size and flavors just like bulbs – BC Garlic Growers brings 4 varieties to the market! They can be used in stir fry, soups, stews and chopped up in salads as well as for making crunchy garlic pesto. Garlic scapes have a very short growing season, available only late June until early July – grab them this Wednesday before they’re gone until next year!
