Olive Oil or Lard

Garlic Scapes

Salt & Pepper

Lemon Juice (optional)

chopped herbs (optional)


Mix lard or  olive oil with salt & pepper & toss with scapes until well coated (you may need to rub them up a bit) then grill over a hot fire until tender and slightly browned. Season with a little salt and lemon juice to taste once off the grill.  Some chopped herbs sprinkled on are nice as well.

Even raw, garlic scapes are mellower than the cloves of garlic, and when grilled they mellow even further.
