Seasonal Cooking- Ramp Butter

Seasonal Cooking- Ramp Butter

ramps

It’s here, the few week window when ramps make their seasonal debut.  This scallion like, spring onion has a slight onion flavor and adds delicate flavors to any dish. I have been chopping and throwing them in salads, potato dishes and pastas and just as I am savoring their sweet goodness, I start to anticipate the weeks to come when they are no more. Enter ramp butter!

I was doing some research about how to preserve the ramp flavors all year long and came across this ramp butter recipe from Bon Appetit and had to make my own.

Ingredients:
1 and 1/3 cup of vegan butter, Earth Balance is my favorite
10 ramps, cleaned and finely chopped
1 teaspoon of salt
Sprinkle of black pepper

Method:
In a food processor, pulse all ingredients until a butter texture is formed
Store in a glass jar for easy access to this creamy and fresh butter all week long or roll in wax paper and freeze to remind you of spring anytime of the year!
