Pickled Garlic Scapes

Garlic scapes are a little bonus of garlic plants, and have many uses. Here is one of our favorite ways to enjoy them.

This is a very flexible recipe and can be fitted to whatever size jar you want to make.

Fill jar with sliced garlic scapes (take care not to get the tough ends), hot peppers (however many you like....we use only one in a pint jar), some thyme, and a little honey.

Fill jar with vinegar of your choice. We have used apple cider vinegar and white wine vinegar.

Store in the refrigerator. Let sit a few weeks before eating. They will be very spicy.

Great in a stir fry or salads, or with marinated meats...there are so many possibilities.

This recipe is very similar to our pickled egg recipe.
