Ramps

Ramp up your culinary expectations with this wild vegetable. Similar to leeks, ramps have a bold onion/garlic flavor with a woodsy aroma. They resemble a scallion, and although small, they deliver a powerful pungent taste. Add ramps to rice, soups, or stews or use as a substitute for scallions or leeks. Store ramps in multiple plastic bags to prevent their strong odor from affecting other foods.
