I have had good luck roasting garlic by putting it in foil with a little olive oil and putting it in a crock pot on low. I have a smallish crock pot, but was thinking one of those little potpourri warmers would be perfect for this. Also, by the way, 'baked' potatoes by putting foil wrapped taters in a crock pot. They can heat all day.

Default Garlic Scape Pesto

This recipe is recommended by FarmersDaughter. She uses toasted walnuts instead of almonds.

Garlic Scape and Almond Pesto
Makes about 1 cup

10 garlic scapes, finely chopped
1/3 to 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan (to taste and texture)
1/3 cup slivered almonds (you could toast them lightly, if you'd like)
About 1/2 cup olive oil
Sea salt

Put scapes, 1/3 cup cheese, almonds and half the olive oil in bowl of a food processor (or use a blender or a mortar and pestle). Whir to chop and blend all ingredients; add remainder of oil and more cheese if desired. If you like the texture, stop. If you'd like it a little thinner, add some more oil. Season with salt.

If you're not going to use the pesto immediately, press a piece of plastic against the surface to keep it from oxidizing. The pesto can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple of days or packed airtight and frozen for a couple of months.
Now an Oregon gal
