Level up your “onion ring” obsession with these fried garlic scapes ft our Garlickle Seasoning!
Oil for frying – use grapeseed oil, peanut oil, canola, or oil with a high smoke point
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups beer (we used Sockeye Brewery’s Dagger Falls IPA)
2 teaspoons Molly’s Garlickle Seasoning (pickled garlic, dill pickles, jalapenos, green peppercorns, dill, and sea salt)
10 freshly cut garlic scapes
Sunshine Creamy Hot Garlic Sauce for dipping
Heat a large douch oven or pot with about 1 inch of oil. Rinse and dry your garlic scapes. Wrap the scapes into loose knots, leaving a 1-2 inch center. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and seasoning. Stir until well combined.
Add the beer to the mixture, and stir until combined.
Dip the garlic scape knots into the batter. Cover thoroughly.
Once the scapes have been covered in batter, and your oil reaches about 375, add the scapes to the oil in a single layer. Fry for 3-4 minutes, flipping halfway, or until golden brown. Once cooked, set it on a paper towel to soak up extra oil. Let cool before serving.
