A few weekends ago I visited Dupont Farmers Market with my friends and decided to pick up a bunch of ramps. I think I've only had ramps a few times in my life but have never cooked with them. My friend Cecilia suggested I make pesto, and that's exactly what I did.
What To Do With Ramps: Ramp & Almond Pesto
7 ramps: leaves and white parts, roughly chopped
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
salt to taste
1. Puree ramps, almonds and Parmesan cheese with enough oil to reach your desired consistency. Season with salt.
