Ramps and Rhubarb!
Ramps aka wild leeks are hard to get 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 the taste of 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!
