RECIPE: Garlic (scape) bread

Difficulty Level: Easy!

 1 bunch Garlic Scapes (approximately 10 shoots)

 1/2 cup Butter, chopped into six pieces

 1 pinch Kosher Salt

 1 loaf of bread, French or Ciabatta, or whatever you like

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roughly chop the scapes. Add to the bowl of a food processor and process about 15 seconds. Add butter and salt and process for another 15 seconds or so, until the butter and scapes form a paste. There are two ways to tackle the assembly: Either slice the loaf length-wise and shmear or cut a dozen or so horizontal slits across the top and apply the butter inside each. Or cut the loaf in half and try both. Wrap the loaf in foil. Toss in the oven for 15 minutes.  Remove loaf, unwrap the foil and enjoy.

You can also add any fresh herbs or dried chillies to the food processor to chop with the scapes.
