Garlic Scape Butter

Garlic Scape Butter


  • Garlic scapes
  • Unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • Lemon zest
  • Salt


Start by preparing the garlic scapes. Trim the ends of the scapes and chop them into small pieces. The amount of garlic scapes you use will depend on your preference and the desired level of garlic flavor.

In a mixing bowl, combine the room-temperature butter, chopped garlic scapes, lemon zest, and a sprinkle of salt.

Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. You can use a spoon or fork for this step, or even your hands to ensure even distribution of the garlic and herbs.

Transfer the butter mixture onto a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap. Shape the mixture into a log by rolling it tightly. Twist the ends of the paper or wrap to seal the butter log.

Place the wrapped garlic scape butter in the refrigerator to chill and firm up. This will allow the flavors to meld together and make it easier to slice and use.

Once the garlic scape butter is chilled and firm, you can use it in various ways. Spread it on bread or rolls, melt it over grilled meats, toss it with cooked vegetables, or use it to flavor sauces and dressings. The possibilities are endless!
