Scapes are the leafless stem and bud of a plant that are harvested before they flower. 

Scapes grow on leeks, onions, and garlic. You can cook them just like you cook onions: chop them up into fine pieces and use them for making salads, pastas, garnishes, omelets, quiches, and more. On their own they make for a great pesto! Scapes can be a great way to make the most out of each and every crop that is grown.

How to preserve scapes:

For short term use you can refrigerate them for a minimum of four weeks. Scapes can also be chopped up and frozen raw.
