Garlic scapes

These beauties were photographed downtown at the Greenmarket last Sunday.  Quincy had some lovely spring veggies out but none were quite as photogenic as these garlic scapes.  Garlic scapes are the stems that eventually hold the round flower ball.  Most farmers cut them off in the theory that if the plant doesn't bloom it will put more energy into the bulbs.  The scapes have only a hint of garlic; they're sweet and tender, not fibrous and tough.  I like them sliced thin on a salad, but they go great in soup, sauce or just fried up with a bit of olive oil or butter like fried peppers.
