“I scoured the Internet looking for a recipe for Garlic Scapes and Hot Pepper Jelly. I found lots for ordinary garlic but none specific for using just the scapes, so I decided to try my hand at adapting a known recipe but using just the scapes. My concoction turned out pretty good (even my wife likes it) so I decided to publish it. I may make another batch but this time I'll add about 20 leaves of Basil. I'm sure that will create a whole new flavor. Let me know if you try this recipe and how you liked or disliked it. Keith”
