Garlic Scapes are shipping now. These are fresh picked and sold in 1/2 pound and 1 pound packages. Garlic scapes are delicious. The Elephant Scapes are mild and have a more subtle garlic flavor.
My favorite part is the flower head bud of Elephant Garlic. I cut the scapes in two inch pieces, and sauté them in butter. The flower bud just melts in your mouth. They stay fresh refrigerated for about three weeks, or can be blanched and frozen. Vacuum sealing Garlic Scapes for freezing works great.
