Several of my onions have a bulb-type flower (not yet open) growing from a long stalk. Is this similar to scapes on garlic? I'm guessing I should cut them off, but do they have a culinary use? Are there recipes for them? Do I cut right at the base of the stalk, or what? I'm growing garlic for the first time also, but no scapes there. so I'm not sure what a scape looks like. (This is my second time with onions, but this didn't happen when I grew them before, as some local wildlife ate the tops of all my onions before they were mature.) Thanks!
