Making Garlic Scape Pesto on Pittsburgh Today Live
Pittsburgh Today Live producer Jill Neely let me do a little cooking this week on the show. I made one of my favorite seasonal dishes. Garlic scapes are the seed heads of garlic plants and need to be removed so that the plant focuses on making big bulbs instead of seeds. They are a wonderful treat and can be used many different ways in the kitchen. This pesto is my favorite way to enjoy the scapes.
