About the Event

Join us on Sunday morning May 9th at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm for a unique experience -- foraging for fresh wild ramps with Herdie Baisden. Fresh wild ramps are one of the earliest  harbingers of spring, and Herdie can spot them from over 100 feet away. He's been foraging for ramps for a number of years. Even before you find them, you may be captivated by their pungent smell floating up from the damp forest floor through the fresh spring air.

Why hunt for ramps? Because they're delicious! These wild leeks are like God's gift to the mouth!  If not that, ramps are at least a gourmand's delight. Their bold, spicy flavor is like a combination of onions and garlic -- and ramps can be a great substitute for both. Enterprising foragers are selling ramps to some of the finest restaurants in America. One of Herdie's favorites is Grilled Ramps with Sherry-Ramp Vinaigrette.

Not only do ramps taste good, they are also good for you. High in vitamins  A and C, ramps have the same  cholesterol-reducing properties as other members of the Allium family. 

Take them home and eat them right away, as these fresh delicacies are highly perishable; 

Another thing about ramps, is that their season  -- like morel mushrooms -- is extremely short. Ramps emerge early in the spring just before the trees leaf out; and once the tree  canopy  emerges, the ramps begin to die back.  Who knows when that will happen this year!

These are the reasons why you need to grab the opportunity to  go foraging for ramps with Herdie. He might even cook up a few!
