2015 Season cover


Ramps appear first in their southern range in late March. The season finally ends in the far north in early-to-mid June.

Fresh Ramps and Wild Leeks have a bold, spicy flavor, like a combination of onions and garlic and make an exciting statement no matter how you use them.

The folk medicine reputation which holds both Ramps and Wild Leeks to be powerful healers turns out to be well deserved. They are high in Vitamins C and A, and full of healthful minerals and have the same cholesterol-reducing compounds found in garlic and other members of this family.

Lest the reputation for excessive stinking scare you away from trying them, you should know that Earthy Delights sells Ramps and Wild Leeks (both) to some of the finest restaurants in America. No complaints about too much stink yet!

Ramp Aioli
Aioli is essentially a garlicky mayonnaise that is a traditional sauce and spread in the Provencal region of France. Our version incorporates a North American native, the wild ramp (or wild leek), in place of the garlic. The resulting mixture with rich flavors of egg, olive oil and pungent ramps, bears little resemblence to commercial mayonnaise. The small amount of effort required is amply rewarded by the luxurious taste & feel of a classic condiment, updated for our enjoyment.

Buttermilk Ramp Biscuits
Nothing says "Country Breakfast" like fresh, hot buttermilk biscuits. As long as we're making real biscuits from scratch, why not go all the way and add some tangy ramps and crisp bits of smoked hog jowl? There is really nothing hard about making biscuits. With a little bit of practice, you can whip up a batch in 15 minutes or less (plus baking time, of course). You'll have just enough time to brew up a pot of coffee before they're ready.

Sautéed Ramps with Apple Smoked Bacon
In Appalachia, where they are highly revered, ramps are often fried with "taters" in bacon grease or scrambled with eggs and are usually served with bacon, beans, coleslaw and cornbread. But there are literally hundreds of ways to cook ramps and many recipes are easily adapted to accommodate the powerful flavor and aroma of this wild member of the onion family.

This recipe makes four servings - less, if you're a real ramp fanatic.
