Rampalicious

Charles of the Charlestonian Blog has provided illustrated step-by-step instruction on How to Cook Ramps. Ramps are an Appalachian springtime stable staple. You haven’t lived ‘till you go to a ramp fest. Can’t make it to a ramp festival this year? Then do the next best thing and take this photographic ramp tour. You can even have fresh ramps shipped to your front door from this specialty catalog!

I have a well-aged bottle of ramp wine that should compliment Charles’s recipe nicely. We bought it as a joke, but have never had the nerve to give it to anyone as a gift, nor the bravery to open it for own enjoyment. Having eating ramps in many different ways, it’s hard to imagine what ramp wine might taste like. Oh, . . . it say’s here that ramp wine is "great for cooking."

I had never heard of ramps before. I'll have to try some.

They're really quite delicious. Just make sure you have no important face-to-face meetings the next day, as the odor tends to seep out all of your pores for the next 12-24 hours!
