It has arrived. Garlic scape season.
That first bunch of scapes in the CSA box from Lancaster Farm Fresh. Time to head over to the recipe page and start browsing.
It was a great transition box this week.
Strawberries and rhubarb in the fruit share. Spring onions. Baby fennel. Greens. Beets. Cilantro and mint.
The meat share.
Beef stir fry. Pork links. Boneless pork chops.
Tonight I was just in the mood for a stir fry. Using quite a bit of the box, and one of those precious scapes.
Scapes, scallions and chard stems. In the wok with some light olive oil and toasted sesame oil. Fresh ginger.
Add beef, soy sauce, straw mushrooms and curly kale.
Served over brown rice. With a very lovely Linden Rose.
Get yourself to the local farmers markets and see if Love Dove Farms has their usual supply of scapes. So many ways to make them. Not just in pesto.
A short season, but a flavorful one.
