  • 1 cup chopped garlic scapes Note 1
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • ½ fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt


  • In a small food processor, process 1 cup of trimmed and chopped garlic scapes.
  • Combined minced scapes with softened butter, lemon juice and salt.
  • Roll the butter into a log on parchment paper. Wrap it and refrigerate.
  • To freeze: once the log is firm, slice them and wrap them back in parchment paper. Place it in a ziplock bag and freeze for up to 3 months.


Note 1: To prepare the garlic scapes, trim off bulb and top ends of scapes, as they are stringy and tough.
