Garlic Scapes - clarification post

Here we go - this is A garlic scape. If you unwind it it is about 12 inches long. They are the flower part of the garlic that farmers cut off so that the bulb will be bigger. Apparently you can only get them at farmers markets.
And for the recipe I posted in the last post you cut off the flowers, then use the stems. They are very garlicky, but not sharply garlicky - just good flavor. Plus they are just really pretty. I got another bunch of them in my share yesterday. Yay! I might try something different this time... maybe a stir fry? I have two zucchinis as well....

Oh, and do I just have the cutest kitty or what?
