My husband and I are fortunate to have many large patches of ramps(also known as wild leeks) located on our woodland property. We chop and freeze several pounds of the raw ones(green and the white parts) for later use in recipes. This recipe for compound butter may be frozen in logs for future use. it is excellent on steamed vegetables, potatoes, pasta, rice, bread, etc. Ramps grow from South Carolina to Canada, and in many areas they're considered a spring delicacy and even a reason for celebration. The flavor is a cross between green onion or scallion and garlic. Dig these spring treasures now because their growing season is limited to a few short weeks. I also have a recipe posted for Potato, Bacon, Ham, & Ramp (Wild Leek Soup) on the Just a Pinch site. Regular cultivated leeks, available at most grocery stores, may be substituted in either recipe after trimming and discarding any tough green outer leaves.
