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.
