It may sound crazy, but I love when garlic scapes are in season. They are not around for long, but yet, I want to use them all year. Here is my solution…garlic scape butter.
I take about two large handfuls of garlic scapes, cut off any dry ends, and chop into 2-inch pieces. Put the scapes into the food processor with 3 sticks of softened butter. Process until smooth.
I make my garlic scape butter on the strong side because: 1) I love garlic scapes, and 2) more importantly, I know how I plan to use them.
I use the garlic scape butter for sauteing vegetables, chicken, fish or as a base for a quick sauce.
After you decide if you need more butter in the food processor. Dollop he garlic scape butter onto a parchment lined sheet pan and freeze.
Once frozen, place the dollops into a freezer bag to use the rest of the year!
