Certified Organic Fresh Garlic Scapes – NOW SHIPPING

Fresh farm picked and shipped right to your door in June annually! Free Shipping! WE ARE NOW SHIPPING GARLIC SCAPES (6/18/22)

In June annually, we pick our garlic scapes fresh.  They are boxed and shipped the next day to arrive at your door within 3-4 days.  The scapes should then be eaten or put into a bag and refrigerated in the crisper drawer . If using brown paper one fold to close is fine, if using plastic bag we suggest leaving it OPEN (don’t enclose or allow condensation in the bag). Store for up to a few months. This is fresh produce, so please open your box immediately This only ships once a year in mid-late June. You can eat on them through the summer and feel free to check out our Garlic Scape Recipes page for ideas on different ways to use them.

For foodies interested in the Low FODMAP diet, garlic scapes can be added to recipes, sautéed, eaten on their own and they can be made preserved so that they can be eaten year round. We also have freeze dried garlic scapes and other garlic scape seasonings. *Monash University has lab tested garlic scapes – called ‘Garlic Shoots’ in the app – and they state that a low FODMAP serving is is 30 g. 

What are Garlic Scapes? A Springtime Treat!

See our blog post on Garlic Scapes!

Garlic Scapes are the edible flower stem that grows off the center of the garlic plant.  Appearing on the finest hard neck garlic varieties, the scape curls upward as they grow, ultimately straighten, and then grow little seed-like bulbs. A young scape makes one or two loops before straightening out, and then develops seeds. By snipping off the scape before the seeds develop, more energy goes into making a bigger garlic bulb. When the garlic scapes are still in full curl, they are tender and delicious.
To harvest your garlic scapes, snap off the top of the garlic scape where it emerges from the leaves of the garlic plant. Eat from the part you snapped to the bulb where the flower is forming. Some farmers harvest the scape by pulling the stem straight up for the more delicate flavor of the scape. We don’t harvest this way, since we have a nice rain fall until July and removing the scape that way could lead to bulb damage. Every farm is different, so try what works best for you and your farm.
Garlic Scapes have a wonderful mild garlic flavor that can be used in soups, salads, grilled, pickled, sautéed or a variety of other uses where you desire garlic flavor that is not over the top. The garlic scape is an allium delicacy that is highly prized and traditionally used in Southern, Eastern European, and Korean cuisine because of its subtle garlic flavor and tender-crisp texture.   Since they are seasonal and availability is limited it’s recommend to stock up on as many as you can. Our favorite is making them into pesto, freezing them, pickling them, dehydrating, freeze drying them into seasonings.
