Garlic Scape Pesto

Confessions....it took me a year or two to figure out what a garlic scape was.
Not sure why it was so trivial.
Someone on facebook mentioned garlic scape pesto. I was interested so I googled it. Found a recipe here.
Then I made it in no time. SIMPLE & DELICIOUS!
*Pick it
*Wash it
*Chop it
*Blend it
Add olive oil & Parmesan cheese
*Eat it
*Freeze it

1/2 lb garlic scapes
1 cup olive oil
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese


Good in scrambled eggs, omelettes, quiche, over pasta, home fries, on toast, pizza......
For long term storage I froze in ice cube trays then placed cubes in a ziploc.

I almost skipped this post because I didn't know what garlic scapes were. Glad I decided to check it out. This sounds wonderful.

Looks delicious! I am planting our first garlic this coming October! I am looking forward to growing our own and making lots of pesto.

Thanks for the recipe!

That sounds great! My garlic was all ruined by floods this year but I will plant more in the fall!
