This is going to be short and sweet. Wha? Janis is going to be short and sweet?
I might have a scape problem. I never really saw scapes around when I lived in California or maybe I just didn't notice or care. Since I have gotten to New England I have this addiction to them and go nuts in the summer when I see them. Dr. Food says "You buying MORE scapes? You haven't even used the ones you have" I say "Dr. Food, mind your own beeswax" I love having them for the winter when everything is dreary and I don't have enough vitamin D in my body and I mope around feeling glum. I pull my scapes out and they make me feel like a itty bitty part of summer is there. So, I bought about 4lbs of scapes to freeze. Weeks went on and Dr. Food would say "Uh, you need to do something with those scapes". I didn't feel like chopping them up and putting them in the food processor wasn't appealing because I didn't want a paste I wanted hunks.
So I read that you could salt them and be done with it. We will see if it works. If not this is going to be a long grumpy winter.
