Flavors of spring
I meant to share with you pictures of my new favorite spring fare, that I got just before I set off for New York and wish I’d had more days to gorge on them: ramps and purple asparagus.
Ramps are a kind of wild onion with an extremely limited season.
And the purple variety of asparagus turns dark green when you cook it (unless you use something to stop that, but I find doing so changes the flavor). It has a more intense flavor than the usual green kind, and yes, we conducted a taste test to see if we could tell the difference. Grilled, it’s incredible. With the ramps.
How long do I have to wait til spring??
