Foraging for Ramps in Stowe, Vermontphoto

Ramps are a perennial, early spring wild onion with a strong garlic-like odor. The flavor is pungent and slightly nutty, somewhere between garlic, onion and leek and both the leafy tops and tender bulbs are edible. Other names for ramps are spring onion, wild leek, wood leek, and wild garlic. Ramps, along with their vegetable friend, the fiddle head fern, are found all across New England and mark the beginning of the spring and summer seasons. Because ramps have such a small growing season, I try to take advantage of this and make a ramp pesto that can last well into the summer.
