Ramp up your dishes with this wild, hand foraged plant. Similar to leeks (but not a leek!), ramps have a bold onion-y, garlic-y flavor with a woods-y aroma. They resemble a scallion, and although small, they deliver a powerful pungent taste. Simply sautee ramps with butter, or add to soups, pestos, or even risotto! Ramps can be used a substitute for scallions and leeks. Store ramps rolled up in a damp paper towel placed into a plastic bag (but kept open to keep air flow to the plant).
