The appearance of garlic scapes in the market and, subsequently, in our kitchen has triggered a series of ideas. In seasons past we have made garlic scape butter, garlic scape sausages, garlic scape mayonnaise, it's warm cousin: garlic scape hollandaise, garlic scape soup, pork and garlic scape dumplings, and garlic scape pickles.
This year I have noodles at the top of the list. Soon to be followed by infusing soy and fish sauces with ground garlic scapes: raw, charred, and smoked.
