The fresh wild ramp season is upon us and as always it is short lived. The season only lasts for around 8 weeks, during which time you will find ramps on the menu’s of North America’s best restaurants. Although technically they are a wild leek, the flavor is more pronounced than that of a leek. The tops are excellent as a pesto and the bulbs make for some excellent pickling. Try to cook them over an open flame to savor their sweet and nuanced flavor. From fish and steak to chicken and game or in a ragout served with fresh pasta, they are versatile and delicious.
How to Store and Handle Wild Ramps
- Wild ramps typically last for 7-10 days in the refrigerator.
- It is not uncommon to find the occasional bug on a wild ramp, simply wipe it off and know that it is still perfectly safe and delicious to eat.
