Sautéed Garlic Scapes

Recipe from Fred Forsburg - Honeyhill Farm


  • Garlic Scapes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Wash and Snap Scapes into bite size pieces. Snap off the pointy end and dispose, eating  the fleshy portion.
  • Place a sauté pan on medium high heat and allow it to get hot
  • Add olive oil
  • Sauté until al dente, sauté means “to jump” , move them around, 1 minute
  • Serve as a side or main dish. Tastes like roasted garlic with a spring flavor
If over-cooked they will be tasteless
