Lemon Garlic Scape Compound Butter

Total Time 5 mins


  • 1 stick salted butter softened
  • 1-2 garlic scapes
  • zest from 1/4 of a lemon


  • Chop the garlic scapes into small pieces, about a quarter of an inch each. Add the pieces to the bowl of a food processor and chop until fine.
  • Add the butter (you may need to give it a rough chop in order for it to fit in the food processor) and the lemon zest to the garlic scapes.
  • Puree in the food processor until all ingredients are evenly combined


  • For immediate use, place the compound butter in a jar or plastic container. Store in the fridge for up to a couple weeks
  • For longer term storage, place the compound butter on a piece of wax paper, roll it into a log and twist the ends. See the image below. For additional protection, place the roll of butter into a plastic zipper bag. Store in the freezer for 2-3 months.
