Late in the spring season, wild leek bulbs swell as the green tops begin to wither. If you're looking for plump, mellow ramp bulbs, for pickling, slicing or sauteeing, you're in luck.

Leek Bulbs are available only for a few short weeks at the end of spring.

Try this incredibly delicious (and spicy!) recipe for pickled wild leeks from fab food-blogger Jaden at SteamyKitchen.com!

Recipes

Caramelized Wild Leeks (Ramps)
In the south, ramp season begins in early Spring,
just after the ground begins to warm. The first ramps of the year are young and tender with a slender bulb, barely the size of scallions. As the season progresses, the harvest moves north, where allium tricoccum is better known as the "wild leek." By mid-June, the green leaves have yellowed and fallen away and the bulb swells and mellows in flavor.

Wild Leeks in Balsamic Vinegar
This recipe is based on the classic Italian recipe, "Cippolini Agrodolce" or sweet and sour cippolini onions. It's long been one of our favorite Italian condiments.

Ed Baker, Earthy Delights company president, suggested that we try creating our own version using one of our wild springtime specialties, wild leek (or ramp) bulbs. The tangy flavor of this wild member of the onion family seemed the perfect candidate for this type of preparation.

Here's what we came up with.

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.

Scalloped Potatoes With Ramps
The distinctive bite of ramps adds a new dimension to this recipe for the family classic, Scalloped Potatoes. If you don't have fresh ramps or wild leeks, defrosted frozen ones will work nicely.
