Garlic is possibly my favorite seasoning/flavor. I put it in just about everything I cook, barring sweets. It would be a serious benefit to both our taste buds and our wallets for Matt and I to produce our own garlic. However, at this point we are no where near supplying my ravenous demand! Oh well, that just means I can support the local, pesticide-free garlic farmer at the farmer's market for at least another year.
The scapes were not garlicy tasting, at least not to me. I am not really sure how to describe the taste and I imagine that changes depending on the cooking method so I won't even try. In any case, they were homegrown, green veggies so garlicky or not they were great! They had a very satisfying, crisp texture. Scapes will definitely be one more thing for me to look forward to in the garden each year.
