Brrr ramps

Ramps

Now that the wood furnace is back on, we are in the kitchen baking bread, fixing dinner and… putting up the ramps that my fab neighbor gave us!  Thanks Kate!!  =)  For those that are not familiar, ramps are in the garlic family and can have a very strong taste; the white part more so than the leaves.  I am making some pesto and ramp butter to use over the summer; do not attempted this without at least a mini food processor – blenders are not effective.

Pesto: combine washed ramps, olive oil, and parmesan cheese (I did not have pine nuts) in a food processor and whirl away.  When the consistency is the way you like, then your done.  I froze some and the rest is in the fridge.

Ramp butter – chop ramps and combine with butter; refrigerate or freeze.

How do you fix ramps?
