Ramp o Rama in New York

Jason and I visited some friends Yve and Marty near Rochester, NY last weekend. We relaxed in the grass with their cats and were sent home with an amazing array of extra farm tools, perennial flowers, and ramps! Ramps are wild leeks that grow in damp, semi-shady woodland areas. They are beautiful plants with a delicate but pungent garlicky, grassy flavor. We transplanted some of the ramps to try and start our own patch since we haven't found any wild locally yet and of course we ate the rest!
