We went to the Exeter Farmer's Market today, and were excited to see garlic scapes! We first heard about garlic scapes two years ago when we joined a CSA, and the first recipe we tried with them was garlic scape pesto. Absolutely wonderful - just scapes, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, and a little lemon juice, chopped in the food processor until smooth, and then spread on anything from crackers to toast to sandwiches - you get the idea. Fabulously tasty.
We also like scapes in a stirfry with snap peas - but didn't see any peas at the market today (if we had, that would have been dinner tonight!). So instead, we took a handful of scapes, chopped them into 1" pieces, and sauteed them in a little butter for about 5 minutes. Then we added a splash of balsamic vinegar, cooked another minute, and served with spaghetti. The spaghetti was organic, but not local, so we won't make the dish this week's One Local Summer meal -but it was so yummy, we had to share the "recipe" with you, in case you come across some scapes in your own travels!
I would include photos here of our other farmers' market purchases, but somehow the pint of organic strawberries didn't make it home (I admit - we ate a PINT of strawberries on the ride - they were that good!!). And the pork - well, it's not at its most photogenic in its current frozen, packaged state. I figure it'll be better to share a picture once it's cooked up into a yummy dish or two!!
