Fresh Produce Tuesday- Week #5 Garlic Scapes & Green Garlic

I had yet another tough week of finding the produce for this week’s Fresh Produce Tuesday.  I looked high and low for garlic scapes at several stores, but came up empty-handed.  Thank you so much to Georgianne Mora from A Cooking Life for letting me use the lovely picture above.

I originally had just scheduled garlic scape recipes for this week of Fresh Produce Tuesday, but last week Tracey from A2ZMommy and What’s In Between asked for suggestions for spring garlic that she saw in the store.  Spring garlic (also known as green garlic), is young garlic that is pulled to thin out the garlic crops, while garlic scopes are the curling, flowering stalks that are cut off the garlic plant.  I can’t wait for the farmers’ markets to get going around here so I can start making some of these recipes:
