Garlic scapes are the flowering stems of the garlic plant. Farmers usually cut these off to allow the bulbs to grow larger, but the scapes themselves are tender and edible, with a taste milder than that of the cloves.
How to Select
Make sure the bottom ends of the scapes you purchase are not “woody”, i.e., check that they are tender enough to be edible.
How to Store
Store garlic scapes in the refrigerator for up to a month.
