It’s said that this is one of the best cooking garlics. It is very flavorful, having won “best baking garlic” taste tests conducted by Rodale, Sunset Magazine, It holds its shape and retains flavor well when cooked. Some years it can be hotter or milder than usual, but it is always fully garlicky.

What is that smell in the garlic patch lol, Alaska Fish Fertilizer is a fish emulsion fertilizer which is just a fancy way of saying it's a natural fertilizer made from the unused remains of fish. It contains a 5-1-1 (N-P-K) ratio which basically means it contains 5% Nitrogen, 1% Phosphorus and 1% Potassium.

Garlic Scapes!

What is it?
Garlic Scapes are stalks that grow from a maturing garlic plant.

What can I do with it?
Eat it, of course! Garlic scapes can be used in main meals, served as a side dish, or eaten all by itself! But it doesnt end there; some of our customers use these scapes to make garlic spread and butter. My favourite way to serve these is sautéed in a pan with a mix of other harvested veggies. Another way these delicious scapes can be used is by being grilled on the barbecue. Place the scapes into some tin-foil, add some olive oil, and any other veggies you want. Wrap it up and place it on the grill!!

How do I prepare it?
Chop it up or dice it up!

Where do I buy these?

We will post when scapes become available.

When are garlic scapes in season?

These thin, green stalks are in season in the late spring and early summer. Because garlic farming is dependent on soil temperature, scapes start growing once spring arrives and the soil starts warming up. In most parts of the country, scapes are ready to be harvested in June and July.

What are garlic scapes?

Garlic scapes are the tender stem and flower bud of a hardneck garlic plant. (Hardneck garlic is the kind of garlic that typically grows in Canada and the northeastern U.S.) Scapes first grow straight out of the garlic bulb, then coil. When harvested, they look like long, curly green beans.

What do they taste like?

Garlic scapes taste like a unique blend of onion, scallion and garlic. However, scapes are usually less fiery and have a fresher, “greener” taste than the actual garlic bulbs. The texture is similar to that of asparagus.

How do you store garlic scapes—and how long do they keep?

Garlic scapes keep very well in the crisper—they can last for up to two weeks. You can also chop them up and freeze them in plastic bags, which will preserve them for much longer.

How do I prep garlic scapes?

Scapes are really easy to prep. Most of the time, the tips of the scapes will have a little bulb on it. Snip off the tips and the bulb, run the scapes under some water to get rid of any dirt and chop up the scapes to whatever length you’d like.

How do I eat them? What garlic scapes recipes can I use?

Scapes are very versatile and can be used in an assortment of recipes. They can be used anywhere you might otherwise use garlic cloves or scallions. (If using, we would recommend not adding garlic as the flavour can be overwhelming.) They can be sautéed, pureed, roasted and pickled. They’re great in Asian cuisine, such as a stir fry. They can be diced and used in omelettes, frittatas, soups and salads. They can be eaten cooked or raw—though, be warned, they are a little tough when raw. They can also be pickled then used in salads in place of gherkins or other pickles.
Another common use for garlic scapes is pestos: it’s a great alternative to the standard basil and pine nuts pesto. Garlic scapes pesto can be made by simply replacing basil with raw scapes. It’s best to use a neutral tasting oil so the natural flavours of the garlic scapes can shine through.

In its finished form, this pickle ends up tasting like a wonderfully garlicky dilly bean. If you like the combination of garlic and a snappy pickle, you'll be quite pleased with this one.
