Jamie Wyeth’s Garden Ramps

We were fortunate enough to walk the property this week with Jamie Wyeth to see the Ramps growing in the woods.

Ramps, a.k.a. wild leek or Allium tricoccum, are a delicious spring food native to rich, moist, deciduous forests in the northeastern United States. The stems and broad leaves have a mild garlic‑onion flavor and can be enjoyed raw, cooked, or pickled. They appear for a short period in the early spring.

Local Ramps from Jamie Wyeth’s property are available at Janssens Market.
