Keep scapes in a plastic bag in your fridge.
Garlic scapes are the soft, lime-green-colored stems and unopened flower buds of hard-neck garlic varieties. Scapes have a mild garlic flavor and a slight sweetness, which makes them a prized addition in the kitchen.
Scapes are very versatile in the kitchen. They can be processed into a pungent pesto, placed whole on the grill like asparagus, or diced up and used as an aromatic in a saute.
You can substitute scapes for garlic cloves in any recipe, however they are not as pungent in flavor so double or triple the amount of scapes you use compared to cloves.
