Garlic Scape Pesto

The cold weather this spring and summer are incredible for cool season beauties in the garden like our kale, lettuce, herbs, cabbage, broccoli and GARLIC.  I had a guest recently ask, "is that corn growing".  They likely did not realize what a complement that truly is.  Here is a wonderful recipe I use for the garlic scapes.  This pesto has been wonderful as a veggie dip, on a salad, and over pasta.  

6-7 garlic scapes
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup parmesan cheese 

Blend in a food processor til smooth and creamy .  
Use fresh or jar it up in the freezer for a cold winters night treat.
