Ramps and Rhubarb! We are happily up to our knees in both! We fired up the stove at #5 this week to stock up our larder and freezer using these delectable spring delicacies.
Ramps aka wild leeks. are hard to find in some areas but if you do have a “connection”…by all means try out a few of our favourites! For my money they have more of a garlicky flavour rather than do leeks.
Ramp buttermilk biscuits are another springtime must around here. And then there is an amazing “pesto” that we toss with spaghetti and sprinkle with toasted breadcrumbs. Not to mention a ramp Italian sausage risotto. Or, you might consider chicken braised with ramps…sort of “white coq au vin.” Certainly went down a treat here!
