Ramp season is just now peaking, which means beautiful, large bulbs and abundant supplies! Try pickling
these Ramps or making pesto
Ramps (a.k.a. Wild Leeks) are nature's most pungent and sweet spring allium. Every spring, in various parts of North America, ramps pop out of the ground and create quite the excitement. Ramps in West Virginia, Michigan and parts of Ontario, are celebrated in local festivals, fleeting appearances on menus throughout the country, and massive pickling projects for enjoying this delicacy throughout the year.
Right now, Wineforest is working with foragers in Michigan to source these Ramps. Connie from Wineforest only works with foragers who pick in a sustainable way, ensuring that the wild ramp population remains healthy and abundant year after year.
