Went into the woods last evening and picked me some ramps . . . There is no way to explain the beauty or the fine taste of these delectable lovelies . . . but I’ll tell you how to eat them if you are fortunate enough to have some around.
First: you get loose dirt off then clean them in cold water
Second: you peel off the membrane that covers the bulb
Third: cut up the plants as small as you want. (I like larger pieces)set them aside and pat them dry.
Fourth: Fry up about 8 or so pieces of bacon
Five: remove bacon from pan and add the ramps into the hot bacon grease. Stir them around until they wilt up, then remove them into a bowel and add the bacon in small chunks to the mix.
Six: put some on your plate, add vinegar to taste and eat em up! . . . nothing better than a mess of ramps, but they stink . . . and so will you . . . and so will your house . . . but who cares!
PS If you don’t like the bacon idea you can use olive oil . .
So . . . get up, get into the woods and find some today, you only have a short time till they are gone . . . you’ll be glad you did.
