Pickled Garlic Scapes

This is a very easy and basic recipe..

  • 3 cups white vinager
  • 3 cups of water
  • 2 tsp of pickling spice in a tea ball or spice bag
  • 2 tsp of pickling salt

Tip and tail your garlic scapes, wash them well in cool water, then drain and cut them into two to four inch pieces, this really does need to be a big flexable as size and curl effects the cutting.

Prep your jars, lids and your canning pot as per normal, when you remove the hot jar, fill the jar with garlic scapes, fill to half a inch from top, then add the Pickling mix to half a inch from the top, wipe your lip, lid and seal, into the hot water bath for ten min.

Out and onto the towel, allow to sit for a full 24 before moving, you will have a very light pickle within 24 hours perfect for a snack, the depth and flavour will increase with age..

Makes four pints, once opened, keep in fridge.
