Ya got that straight!  Boy do I miss Adam!  But I'm sure Nikki is quite busy--it's summer and I believe she's a grad student too.

Slice brought me here!  It's hard to believe that oven isn't used to serve the people (en masse)!  I would definitely pay to attend.  Where those scapes shaved raw and topped or blanched beforehand?

Well done and thanks for the update on the GM.  Thanks to Norma, I'm sitting on a bag that's over due for a test against Caputo.  I"ll update when it's been done.

This was my first exposure to Neo. pies. I had few garlic scapes slices, it was my favorite. I don't think they were shaved. Not sure, tasted amazing.

Craig used a vegetable peeler on the garlic scapes to shave them down a bit.  I love them to death and I'm hoping that I will find the last of this year's crop at the market this Saturday.  I wouldn't be surprised if they are done for the season, however.  Like ramps, they are only available for a limited time.

That was the first time I had ever had them and they were excellent. I have never seen them for sale around here.

FWIW,  garlic is a perrenial,  just go to your local farm store and buy some certified disease free cloves and plant them.  My garlic never gets too big up here in the NE.  I never harvest the bulbs,  so the scapes always show up on time. -Marc

Shaving them was a great idea I never thought of until seeing those pictures.

Like widespreadpizza said buy the right bulbs and you can keep the scapes coming.  The last bunch I bought were a bit tougher (older) than I'd like.
