A question about a recipe: Squash Blossom and Garlic Frittata

How much of the scape do you use? I've tried using them in the past and I do like their peppery zing, but I've noticed that some parts of the scape seem a bit fiberous...maybe I'm using them wrong?

Great question -- I usually use the top 2/3. What I do is slice down the scape until it starts to seem difficult to slice. That's usually an indication that it's getting fibrous, so I quit there.
