Garlic scapes

I have grown garlic once in the past (hardneck) and chopped up the garlic scapes for on top of pizza when we had them. This year at the farmer's market (St. Paul, MN) a Hmong farmer had one bundle (just $1!), so I got some today. While great as a pizza topping, I am wondering about other uses for garlic scapes. For those unfamiliar these are the long green tops with a small Hershey's Kiss shaped bulge near the top that has the flavor and texture of a single little garlic clove. The texture is like a small leek, and the flavor is garlic with some green onion and leek in the mix. So, to reiterate, what to do with them?
