HOW TO CLEAN RAMPS

Wild ramps are a vegetable that many people haven’t encountered before, here’s a simple tutorial to getting them ready to eat.

DIRECTIONS

1

Rinse ramps under cool running water.
2

Discard any tough, over-large leaves unless your recipe involves pureeing. (The leaves offer a lot of flavor but can be difficult to chew.)
3

Pull back and peel off any translucent skins (these are similar to the skins you find on scallions or green onions).
4

Trim off the roots.
