They bring spring and then they are gone. These ramps came from werp farms in northern Michigan and they are extremely fresh. A ramp is considered a wild leek and has similar flavors with the addition of intense garlic. They can be eaten raw, grilled, sauteed, or even pickled. We bought a whole bunch and have already started using them while they make their short appearance. The leave are great for wrapping or garnishing and the stems pack some big flavors.
