Garlic scapes are garlic's flower buds. The scape emerges, curled and elastic, from the center of the garlic plant in late June. Each is a tiny, bursting, garlic miracle. They're great chopped in salads, or lightly sautéed in butter or fruity oil and tossed with pasta. I hear they make a great pesto, but I'm not sure I'll get there. They're so wonderful fresh, just as they are, that I may just eat all two hundred of them just like this.
