It was a great farmers market yesterday in downtown Laramie. HOT! Very hot for Laramie. It was wonderful to see so many people out and about on a beautiful summer's day.
Ricky surprised me by bringing garlic scapes up from the farm and I promised to share our garlic scape pesto recipe with you all. It's great on toasted bread, crackers or with pasta.
1/4 # garlic scapes (use just the stalks, wash and roughly chop)
1/2 cup organic olive oil
1 cup Parmesan (fresh, not grated, from Whole Earth Grainary is the best)
3 T. fresh lime juice
sea salt to taste
In a blender or food processor, mix the garlic, salt, lime juice and Parmesan into a paste. Then gradually blend in the olive oil.
Enjoy, it's delicious. I found this recipe when I was selling garlic scapes as the produce manager at Moscow Food Co-op in Moscow Idaho from Mary Janes Farm. Here is their farm link.
Check it out, they started out with a small farm selling organic, delicious camp food and have expanded from there. You can also find her awesome organic farm magazine downtown at the Grand Newsstand.
Have a wonderful and safe weekend and we'll see you next week. I think we'll have new potatoes next week and I'll publish our yummy macadamia nut sour cream recipe to top those yummy spuds.
