Ramp into Spring!

Spring has officially sprung, and with it the short window when ramps are in season. What is a ramp you ask? Ramps are a wild spring onion with a taste similar to garlic. They are only in season for a few weeks, typically in late April to early June. You can likely find them at your local farmer’s market, but don’t mistake them for scallions which they sort of resemble.

So what do you do with them? How about a simple Spaghetti with Ramps or this White Pizza with Ramps.

Because the window to enjoy ramps is so short, a great way enjoy the unique taste of ramps past June is to whip up some Compound Ramp Butter which you can add to a baked potato, mix into some pasta with parmesan cheese or use it to make “ramp bread” instead of garlic bread.

Happy experimenting and let us know if you decide to try something new with ramps this Spring.
