Our most-requested sauce is back!

This year’s batch of Green Gems is greener than ever, loaded with locally-foraged mineral-rich kombu to support those digestive and immune systems, and stuffed with as many garlic scapes as we could fit in our car. 

Heat level: 1/10. Lots of green chile flavor, zero fire. The better to experience all those umami bits.

This mermaid snack is in limited supply, available while supplies last. 


What are garlic scapes?

Garlic scapes are the long flowering ends sprouting from the hardneck varieties of garlic plants, which farmers will prune in order to send the plant’s energy back to the underground bulb. Once considered a weed and simply thrown away, scapes are now a magical addition to our already overflowing Sonoma County cornucopia, only available for a fleeting moment in late spring or early summer. For this year’s recipe, we were blessed with sweet and spicy Chesnok Red scapes from Bernier Farms, grown in the Dry Creek region just outside of the town of Healdsburg. The Berniers have been the authority on all things garlic since 1976, and we’re thrilled to be showcasing their prized scapes as a crown jewel in our Green Gems.

We love this sauce. You might even think the secret ingredient is love, but nope, it’s mostly garlic and kelp. Enjoy!
