Garlic Scape - Glossary Term

view glossary term online:
The narrow stalk that forms as a seed head from the garlic plant. As the Garlic begins to grow, a curved stalk starts to form and continues to grow as the plant matures. During the early stages, the Garlic Scape is round, thin and curved in shape. As it matures, the stalk begins to straighten and become less tender in texture. Garlic Scapes are often harvested when young to be used in stir-fries or pesto recipes. They provide a strong garlic taste that is not too overpowering for the other ingredients being combined.
