Garlic Scape Pesto

What are garlic scapes? Garlic scapes are the tender stem and flower bud of a hardneck garlic plant. (Hardneck garlic is the kind of garlic that typically grows in Canada and the northeastern U.S., and we always plant multiple varieties of garlic on the chance of a really cold winter when Hardneck garlic thrives!) Scapes first grow straight out of the garlic bulb, then coil. When harvested, they look like long, curly green beans. They have an intense and fresh garlic flavor and are a special treat before garlic bulb harvest. You can use them in stir-fry or veggie dishes, or make a fabulous pesto!

High Antioxidant Olive Oil is the very best to use for cooking!

Here's a recent (2019) scientific study confirming that sautéing and pan frying using extra virgin olive oil that's high in phenols, does not fully destroy the antioxidant properties or create harmful aldehydes, which makes it the absolute healthiest option to use for cooking, hands down. The study showed that under regular cooking applications, only 40% of the phenols were sacrificed to heat oxidation at 240 F. This means that if you start with an oil that's higher in phenols, you're left with more health benefit at the end of the cooking process. The stale notion that we should not be cooking with the finest, freshest, highest
