I harvested all of the scapes last week, and have been trying to eek out some time to get them used up. (they do store quite well in the fridge...in an airtight container you'll get at the very least a few weeks out of them!)
After work today, I had some time and lots of ambition (keto Popsicles, BBQ chicken, this pesto, and a big batch of scape and basil compound butter ) This pesto recipe, I am embarrassed to say, has been sitting in my drafts for a year folks...a year!!! Note the date on the little jar of pesto below...2017!!!!!! This tells you how busy my last year has been!!! ) The garlic itself looks almost ready to pull as well. This southern Ontario heat wave has certainly helped!
So, if you can find some scapes, make up a batch of this pesto! It really is delicious!

Alternatively, freeze in small mason jars to enjoy at a later time.
