Ingredients
  

  • 1 (ish) lb Garlic Scapes
  • 2 tsp dill (I used Almonds + Pepitas) Other great nuts/seeds to choose from are Walnuts, Pecans, Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 tsp whole peppercorns
  • ½ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Cup  Water
  • 2 tbsp Salt

Instructions
 

  • Trim each end of the scapes, removing the blossoms (you can reserve these for another use, like stir-fries, salads, or my Lemon Balm, Garlic Scape Pesto) and trimming the tough bottom end off.
  • Pack the prepared scapes into a quart-size mason jar (or two pint-sized jars).
  • Add 2 teaspoons of dill and 1 teaspoon of whole peppercorns to the jar(s). These will infuse the scapes with wonderful aromatic flavors.
  • In a pot, mix together 1.5 cups of apple cider vinegar, 1 cup of water, and 2 tablespoons of salt. Stir well to dissolve the salt, and then bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Pour the hot vinegar brine over the garlic scapes in the mason jars. Make sure the scapes are fully submerged. If the brine doesn't cover them completely, add a bit more water or apple cider vinegar until they are covered.
  • Seal the jars with lids and let them cool to room temperature. Once cooled, place them in the refrigerator.
  • Patience is key! Wait at least 2 weeks for the flavors to infuse and develop before enjoying your pickled garlic scapes. Trust me, it's worth the wait.
