Eye Swoon

As soon as Spring arrives ramps seem to pop up on the menu’s of some of my favorite local & seasonal jaunts.

Ramps are certainly a rite of passage for Spring and since the ramp growing season is so short, only lasts for about 6 weeks, people go raging for ramps at the greenmarkets!

Remember when I mentioned a few months back that kale was the prom queen….well I think ramps may be the spring queen!

Even Bill Telepan rated the top 10 NY ramp dishes on Grub Street!

New York Magazine also recently wrote a piece about ramps, giving them a bad wrap since they give you such stinky breath…but who cares…..they are just too yummy to pass up!
