Ramps, also called wild leeks, are similar to a leek or an onion. With a delicious onion-garlic flavor, they are a special once-a-year treat. Recipe from earthydelightsblog.com
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar turbinado sugar is ideal
- 2 lbs ramps
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
- Preheat the oven to 400.
- Melt the butter in an ovenproof sauté pan over medium heat. The sauté pan should be large enough to hold all the leek bulbs in a single layer. Add the leek bulbs and cook until they begin to brown slightly, about 10 minutes.
- Add the sugar and toss, continuing to cook until the sugar melts and begins to bubble, about 2 minutes. Add the salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar and cook for 5 minutes longer.
- Place the pan in the oven, uncovered, and roast for 15 minutes. Remove to a serving dish and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve while still warm.
