Ramp Madness

Ramps

Very soon Canadian foodies will find release from the long winter. Sunshine-filled, warm spring days will tempt them to throw open their doors and take to the woods in search of ramps. In short order, hip restaurants across this beautiful country will be stuffing their menus with this wild green, and ramp chatter will clog social media feeds. You’d think we still lived in a time when salt pork, navy beans and turnips were all that filled our winter larders.

Ramps, also known as wild leeks, are a perennial wild green that look like miniature green onions but with a wider, flatter dark green upper leaf. They can be used, like green onions, raw or quickly sautéed.
