Beans and Legumes, Easy, Recipes, Side Dishes
I’m still working out this recipe, but I’m including it anyway because I want to save the current status and ingredients list. There’s a fair number of variations on succotash and I’m taste-testing my way around, to find out what works for both A) I love it and B) I happen to have ingredients on hand. Lima beans always, because I love lima beans.

Garlic scapes are the young and tender flower stalks and buds of the garlic plant. They pop up in mid-to-late June, spiraling and coiling above the leaves. I wait to cut them until they have had a few days to grow to a nice size, but not too long or they will become tough. If the coils start to straighten out, you’ve waited too long.
Garlic scapes are are AMAZING with a little olive oil and then tossed on the grill, and can be mixed in with any veggies you happen to have on hand for the grill. They are especially wonderful with asparagus, but go ahead and experiment.
