Instructions
  1. Combine all but the sliced scapes in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Add the scapes and return to a simmer, then remove from heat and allow to steep for 20 minutes.
  2. Pour everything into a clean half-pint jar, tightly seal it, and give it a good shake to make sure all the aromatics in the brine are well distributed. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours to allow the flavors to develop.

  1. I made some and they taste great, but how do you use them? They are so small that I don’t know where to use them. Should I be using them like pickle relish. Do you stir them into scrambled eggs? What do I do with them?

    I didn’t use the tip of the scape. Should I have sliced it into the mix too?
