Note from Ricardo

How to trim garlic scapes: Remove and discard about 1 inch (2.5 cm) of the woody bottom, as well as the bulbous flower at the top. These two ends are edible, but can be tough, even after cooking.

Pesto freezes well in small containers or ice cube trays, so you can enjoy the flavour of garlic scapes all year.
