I only took the leaves because the bulbs are too hard to take and if I leave the bulbs, they'll keep coming back.
So now that I know ramps are up, my sister and I are going to head up into the hills around the house where my neighbor told me last year there is a big ol' patch of them. I actually found a lot last year at a park next to the White River, but that entire area is covered with a solid layer of silt now, thanks to Hurricane Irene. :(
I used these ramps last night for supper. I simply rinsed and minced them like parsley, and sprinkled over homemade spaghetti and tomato sauce. Last night was the first time I've ever made homemade pasta and it was... a learning experience. The kitchen looks like I was trying to make the pasta blindfolded and I knew it can be easier/faster than how I made it. Having said that, my spaghetti (which really looked more like spaetzle) tasted awesome.
