Escape Clause


It's official. I am in love with garlic scapes. 
I wish I had enough to string them from the rafters. 


We tried a new cooking method this year, which might explain 
my new found passion for scapes.  


 Coated in olive oil and then placed on the grill for about 10 minutes. 


An assistant chef du BBQ isn't necessary, but I didn't want him to have all the fun,
so he graciously let me be his sous chef. 


The longer you leave them on the grill, the crispier they become, 
while the flavour is mellow with just a quick bite of garlic, better than candy I'd say. 
Serve them like cocktail shrimp, they make a great finger food. 
Just provide napkins to soak up the olive oil....or you could just lick your fingers!

Wow ... what a good idea. I used to grow garlic -- many, many years ago -- wish I'd been smart enough to try this! Have a lovely week.

I am a new follower (via Google+ so far...) This is an interesting recipe. I'm going to have to look for these at a Farmer's Market. Do you grow your own. ALSO, can I ask where you found that great Google+ "badge" on your sidebar? I've not seen one like that before. Thanks so much! ~Sally
