I had three delicious airplane meals on Lufthansa today -- breakfast, lunch and then kind of a small second pre-landing lunch. Oh, and five glasses of red wine because they don't charge you at all even in economy.

ps: I lied to US Customs when they asked if I had brought in any contraband agricultural products! shhhh! (though mine was actually purchased at the very legendary Halles de Lyon Paul Bucose -- only the best for Miss P.

The Lufthansa flights to Newark however can be shady.  I've experienced a couple terrifying landings...
As for Customs, I wonder what would happen if they catch someone? Confiscation? Fine?  I always bring a load back to family and friends.   Brought cheese a few times, but industrially wrapped.

Hope you enjoyed many delicious delicacies and libations.

They just confiscate it and throw it in a supposed dump bin (only to eat it later).

Miss P is having pappardelle with basil pesto, ficelle bread with buffalo milk butter, and then perhaps some fromage blanc for dessert and a small bowl of fresh strawberries -- all from my foray to the farmer's market.

we have a winner!
Habersham! :)

The basket full of garlic was my crop from last year.

The "scapes" in the prior pic are basically just the flower stalk that each plant produces.
You want to cut them off when they start to curl like a pig tail and before they bloom to send more energy into bulb growth.

Harvest time is July. Planting time is Sept.-Oct.

The nice thing is is that I chop the scapes into 1/4" pieces and put them in a freezer bag .
They have a mild garlic flavor and are handy to grab without all of the mincing.

Some restaurants put the scapes in salads but I find the raw texture disturbing.
I use them when cooking anything that calls for garlic. :)

Thank you for playing "Name That Thang" and your prizes, um, er....
well, there are no prizes.
I spent the prize money on ingredients to make my turkey garlic chili. :-[

PS- They don't taste anything like leeks.

Ms P also said garlic.  It's not difficult to identify based on that last picture.  I also use fresh garlic when a recipe includes garlic.  Can't beat that taste!

I know betty. Was just wondering if anyone would recognize a garlic "scape".
My guess is that most people have never seen or heard of a garlic scape and with the lackluster number of replies I thought it best to put a quick end to the subject.
(hence the pic of garlic bulbs) :)

No, I've never heard of garlic "scapes."  Do you use those when cooking also, or are they part of the garlic bulb (sorry, didn't look closely at the other pic). :P

I bet the pesto made with garlic scapes would be delicious.

ps: Mitchell, I didn't see your first picture of the scapes only the last of the garlic heads because I was away on my trip. I was logging in from France on my smartphone but, frankly, this forum is very cumbersome to use on a small screen and I'd give up after a minute.

farmers markets have them, maybe Asian grocers because they're used in some Chinese dishes -- they're like ramps, but ramps get more press because they're the first "green" item of spring. Also in June you can find "green garlic" which is simply immature garlic and looks like an overgrown scallion.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/06/dining/green-garlic-grassy-and-sweet-is-in-season.html?_r=0

There are also about a dozen varieties of garlics. When I went to the farmers market in France I saw amazing hues of purple garlic.

Fiddle de Dee Everyone!

Scrapes, Ramps, Ropes and Scallions are all stems which connect to bulbs

Whatever the bulb is determines what you call them

(In a photo they all look pretty much the same)

So let's move on   :)

I'm going to use the scapes in a tuscan kale and apple salad, with a quince vinegar based vinaigrette, that's a very special one for special needs. Then I'll use some of the rest for a mushroom salad with a basic balsamic dressing. I bet they'd be tasty with some scrambled eggs too. They're rather a bit like ramps-lite 2.0 so I could even make pesto.

I'm rather 'meh' on fiddle but love love love hen of the woods! If you adore mushrooms I can't imagine you not liking them.

recipe sounds good as long as you are grilling or sautťing the scapes. Raw, not so much.
and yes, I love mushrooms.

What exactly does one find at Jacques Penne these days? I don't think I've been in one in 20 years. In fact, when I went into La Part-Dieu last week it was the first mega-sized shopping mall I've been in since King of Prussia 8 years ago.

what did you think of the scapes in your salad?
would you bother again?

I ended up using them to roast a pan of potatoes, and they were delicious. I almost bought more today but figured I'll wait and get some next time.

scape season is short.
my guess is they might not be around in another week or 2.
so you oven roasted them with the potatoes? S/P evoo?

Farmers' Market Day -- this one at Rittenhouse Square (btw, Mitchypoo -- there were garlic scapes galore)



purple scallions, strawberries, blueberries, peas, a blueberry scone, fleur de sel caramels (obsessed), local honey, and tuscan kale
Wow, so very....those peas look like they were dumped from a can, the blueberries look like something that might hang in Texas, and I am not talking about a tree, and those things that are supposedly strawberries, well, bless your heart for supporting your local farmers, sad as that might be. Oh the glory of living in Southern California!

That is what local strawberries look like in Germany, France, and Switzerland, too.
I dunno what you think you are getting in Southern California, but i guess its local "industrial" strawberries for the national and international markets.
If I want that kind of strawberry here in Switzerland, the berries come from Spain.  They are cheap. large, succulent looking, and vary i taste from a crunchy lightly sweet "fruit rind" taste, to "strawberry, but not sweet", to "wow, amazing!".   
And buying them puts locals farmers out of business.
And they come with a carbon footprint.
And pesticides....

Bon appetite.

I'm sorry -- but you can't compare the delicate sublime vegetables and fruits from the Amish in Lancaster County or the strawberries of southern New Jersey. Those strawberries in California are over-sized and sold year round at Walmart. U Jellz?

And on that note I am off for a day of shopping at the famous Ninth Street Italian Market. I need to locate a bottle of sirop d'orgeat so I can make Mauresque cocktails all summer long.

LOL!
I was hesitant too but here goes:
S/P= Salt and Pepper
evoo= (according to Rachael Ray) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
(I know it can be a waste to use Extra Virgin at times but it is the only oo I have in the house)
oo= Olive Oil :)

A couple of hours ago I spilt an entire container of fresh salsa verde all down my kitchen cabinets and all over half the kitchen floor. It was horribly unpleasant to clean up.

I spilt a pot of macadamia nut coffee in an apartment I lived in once and considered moving it stank so bad , it was behind and in between the cabinets and impossible to clean up . I don't care for macadamia nut coffee to this day .
