Wild Leek Pesto

Spring is most definitely in the air, and that means a lot of spring produce is starting to crop up at the farmer's markets. Rhubarb. Asparagus. Fiddle heads. And of course, ramps. Also known as wild leeks.


If you've never eaten ramps before, or even seen ramps, they look nothing like the "regular" leeks you would find in your typical produce store. The bottom of ramp stalks look much like a green onions, with reddish-purple stalk and broad leaves. The taste and smell is a cross between a garlic and an onion and very pungent.
