Everything You Need to Know About Ramps with Five Recipes
Ramps are one of those wonderful gifts we get to look forward to every spring, only in season for 6 to 8 weeks! I cook with them as much as I can and then pickle them for later. Find your local green market and give them a try. Ramps look like a scallion but have beautiful and delicious smooth, green leaves. The lower stems are white and purple and start to get a small bulb on root end later in the season. Ramps can be prepared by eating raw or grilling, roasting, pickling and sautéing . Add to your favorite pasta dishes, pestos, soups, polenta, salads and aiolis.
Delicious with other spring produce like mushrooms, asparagus, fiddleheads and lemon.
