A welcomed taste of garlicky sweetness after a cold and dreary winter, ramps are the first sign that spring is here and we at Babbo could not be happier.
Ramps are wild baby leeks that grow only from Canada to the Carolinas. They resemble a scallion, only with broader leaves. Ramps have an robust, garlicky-onion, yet slightly sweet flavor.
Choose ramps that are firm with bright-colored greenery. Wrap tightly in a plastic bag and refrigerate for up a week. Ramps can be used both raw, cooked or pickled. Trim the root ends just before cooking. Buon Appetito!
