Garlic Scape Pesto

Garlic scape pesto is a wonderful thing. It is delicious, easy to make*, easy to use, and freezes well. We try and make a big batch of this when garlic scapes appear at the farmer's market in late spring. Freeze in ice cube trays for easy use later.

2 cups garlic scapes, cut into ½" pieces (stringy and blender-killing otherwise!)
⅔ cup olive oil
1 cup shredded parmesan (or substitute) cheese
⅓ cup pine nuts
⅓ tsp salt

Blend all ingredients in food processor until a pasty consistency.

  • Note that we have destroyed one blender and taken a vitamix to the edge in making, so "easy" may be relative
