I recently promised to get more garlic scape recipes out to you.
So, today, you get two.
Actually, they’re two versions of a single recipe: Garlic Scape Pesto. I’m offering up two because, well, one is an old favourite and the other is becoming a new one.
The first recipe is one that I’ve used for a few years – since before scapes became trendy, really. When I first started serving this pesto, people were always curious. “What the heck is a garlic scape?” they’d ask while wolfing down mounds of pesto-drenched cheesy pasta.
Not many people ask me that question anymore. In fact, nowadays, you have to fight off friends and neighbours to ensure you get your own bunches of scapes at market.
The second recipe is from the fine folks at the Gaelic Garlic. It’s a recipe that they are awfully proud of. Because they speak so highly of it, I decided to put it up against my own recipe in a quick taste test. I’ll give the results of the findings after the recipes.
