Garlic Scape Flower Slow Cooker Broth Recipe

This slow cooker broth recipe made with garlic scape flowers is absolutely delicious – and the perfect broth for my homemade cast iron Dutch Oven garlicky chicken noodle soup recipe.

Broth made with garlic scape flowers in a bowl.


In the past I had not saved the garlic scape flowers, choosing instead to feed them to my poultry.

I was thrilled to learn they had a use as well as the garlic scape stems.

I decided to set the flowers aside as I cut them off the stems and put them in some chicken broth in my slow cooker just to see how it turned out.

The garlic scape flowers add a richness to the chicken broth that normally isn’t there.

The garlic flavor was definitely there but it was not an overpowering taste. In fact I felt it was the perfect amount of mild garlic flavor to compliment the other herbs and spices I added to the broth.

Best of all, by adding all the seasonings to the broth, it is ready to simply use – regardless of how you use it.

This makes this broth a great one to take with you when you go camping, make recipes at someone else’s home or even at church. There is no need to bring extra seasoning with you or realize you forgot the most important one once you get there!

Here is my recipe.
