Collecting Scapes

We planted 4 varieties of garlic last fall... One variety is early and has already started to yellow on the tips,

and the hardneck variety has sent up scapes. The garlic scapes can be harvested when young and tender. They are considered to be a culinary delicacy.

I like to collect the scapes and dehydrate them...They will be ground down into our homemade garlic powder and garlic salt blend.
