Garlic Scapes Recipe + Asparagus: Grow, Harvest, Eat

Garlic Scape Wrapped Asparagus with Prosciutto

Ingredients:

  • 6-8 thin slices prosciutto
  • 6-8 fresh garlic scapes
  • 1 lb fresh asparagus
  • fresh ground pepper
  • olive oil

Preheat oven to 375F. Line baking sheet with foil & oil the foil. Wash & trim tough ends off of asparagus. Divide asparagus into 6-8 bundles. Wrap each bundle with a slice of prosciutto. Wash and trim tough end off garlic scape; scape should be about 8″ long when trimmed. Gently, wrap one scape around the prosciutto wrapped asparagus bundle and tie once to hold bundle intact. (see photo) It does not need to be tight; take care not to break the scape as you tie.  Lay each wrapped bundle on oiled foil-lined sheet. Sprinkle with a bit of olive oil and a grind of pepper.

Roast bundles in preheated oven or hot grill for about 14 minutes or to taste. Prosciutto should be crispy-chewy, not crumbly. Asparagus should be warm but crisp to the bite.

Serve with a side of melon or papaya and lots of crunchy veggies like seasonally available radish and sugar snap peas for a fantastic summery meal.
