RECIPES: lots of ideas for garlic scapes →
From our own blog! Garlic scapes have a pretty strong garlic flavor and can be used in any recipe that calls for garlic. Chop or mince them and throw them in a skillet with some olive oil or butter. Cook until they begin to soften, and then add more vegetables and cook until the vegetables are tender — perhaps diced beets or roughly chopped chard from this week’s share?? Scapes are delicious...

RECIPE: Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup with... →
We’ve made this soup a number of times and really adore it. The addition of chili sauce adds a nice kick that winter squash soups don’t often have. To the recipe as listed, we also add three cloves of garlic and a heaping tablespoon of curry powder. Works great with many kinds of winter squash. We really like kabocha. Delicious even without the Thai Gremolata on top.
