Pickled garlic scapes

In its finished form, this pickle ends up tasting like a wonderfully garlicky dilly bean. If you like the combination of garlic and a snappy pickle, you'll be quite pleased with this one.

 
  • Yield:makes 1 pint
  • Active time: 30 minutes
  • Total time:1 week

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound garlic scapes (approximately 2-3 bunches)
  • 1 teaspoon dill seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 3/4 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon pickling salt
 

Directions

  1. Trim the ends of the scapes, both the blossom end and the hard bit that formed at the original cut, and cut them into lengths that will fit in your jar. Prepare a small boiling water bath and a single pint jar. Place the dill and black peppercorns in the jar. Pack the trimmed scapes into the jar.

  2. Combine the vinegar, water and pickling salt in a pot and bring to a boil. Slowly pour the hot brine over the garlic scapes, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Once the jar is full, tap the jar lightly to dislodge any air bubbles. Check the headspace again and add more brine if necessary.

  3. Wipe the rim, apply the lid and ring, and process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Let these pickles cure for at least a week before eating. Pickles will last for several weeks in refrigerator after initial seal is broken.
