Alternate cooking method: This is an alternate method used with garlic scapes freshly cut yesterday from my garlic. Scapes are the flowering part of garlic but must be removed for the garlic to grow bigger. They are a like a garlic flavor green onion. Put the ribs seasoned in a crock-pot on a bed of a little olive oil, sliced onions and chopped garlic scapes and a 1/2 glass of white wine. In the last hour, cover with the jerk base and cook on low the caramelize the sugars in the sauce.Serving over roasted garlic and olive oil couscous.
