Garlic Scape Pesto

Garlic Scapes are the the edible flower stalk of the garlic.  Delicious, garlicky and ready earlier than the garlic bulb.

Chop one pound of Garlic scapes into 3 inch legnths, put them in a food processor and process until pureed

Add one cup of grated Parmesan cheese and half a cup of walnuts, process until smooth

Add the juice of one lemon and process until smooth

Slowly add a half to a full cup of olive oil as the food processor runs and process until smooth.

Toss with pasta, use on fish or chicken, spread on a nice crusty bread, eat with a spoon while lurking for a midnight snack….

Keep in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.
