South Perry’s Spinach and Scape Frittata
This recipe is from a leaflet handed out to customers at the Thursday Market in the South Perry District last week.
Garlic scapes are one of the seasonal delicacies that can be found at local farmers markets in late spring and early summer. The green tops of garlic plants are cut while they are still tender and have started to curl.
