Mr. Smelley’s Recipe for Cooking Ramps
Traditional menu is ramps, pinto beans, ham and cornbread. (Know that ramp odor lingers with you after eating them.) People eat them raw or add raw to eggs and potatoes. Cook them outdoors unless you want a “smelley” kitchen.
1. Clean ramps like you clean green onions, Keep them cool and wash well.
2. Mr. Smelley uses an electric skillet plugged in outside to blanch them.
3. Place a couple of clean handfuls of ramps in the skillet so the water covers them.
4. Bring to a boil for three/five minutes. Pour off the water
5. Then saute them in butter or bacon
