Produce - Garlic Scapes
Garlic scapes are the flower bud of the garlic plant. The bud is removed in late June to encourage the bulbs to thicken up. Scapes make a fabulous addition to a flower bouquet, and they are delicious to eat! Scapes taste just like garlic, and are culinary treasures to garlic enthusiasts and gourmet cooks. They can be used in exactly the same way as garlic in any recipe.
Garlic scapes have the same health benefits as garlic, ie. to provide us with health advantages in a wide variety of body systems, including: our cardiovascular system, immune system, inflammatory system, digestive system, endocrine system, and detoxification system.
