Default Wild Leek Sunday...

Spring finally made an appearance here in Western New York, so yesterday the wife, I and our faithful companion went back in the woods to get some wild leeks (or ramps if you live in other parts), timing was perfect. Today I searching for leek recipes and found this one for "Wild Leek Pie". I was a little skeptical at first, but it was mighty tasty. Definitely a keeper. It fit in perfect with some pulled pork, ribs and shrimp on the UDS. Here's a few pics of a beautiful Sunday. Got dinner in just before the rain hit.

Did some reading about ramps because I raise them. There were some references about being like a leek. What! Not true! You can buy leeks in the store but not a ramp. Ramps are sold at outdoor events because of the strong odor. Much stronger than a leek. One tiny ramp has as much power as a whole basket of leeks. I like them both. Caution, don't eat ramps around someone you like.

I always pick them wild, so I really don't know. Rumor has it, and as Captdan says, that wild leeks are a lot stronger than commercially grown leeks or ramps. Up here in New York we call them "leeks", a little farther south, towards West Virginia they call them "Ramps". And as Captdan states "Caution, don't eat ramps around someone you like."... Or eat them around somebody you don't like. We've pickled them before with good results and I've even seen wine made from them, though I haven't tasted it. Yet.

Titch,wild leek has a taste all of its own. Cross between garlic and onion. Not even close to the home grown/domesticated variety.

I use the white portions,cut lengthwise,dehydrate them and grind them up into ramp Powder. Awesome stuff. You have to use it sparingly though, it is potent.

Hey Budman, we're practically neighbors - I'm down in Allegany County, or as we say "Agony" County. I too have been partaking of spring's bounty lately. Keeps the in-laws away. Not to hijack, but here's a new one I tried a few weeks back, which went over huge with my fellow leek lovers: cold smoked leek dip. Just soften up some cream cheese, mix in some minced leeks (as many as you think you'd like, (I liked a ton), some shredded cheddar, a splash of vinegar (I used my home made cider vinegar), some crisp bacon bits and some black pepper. I lined a shallow aluminum pan with cling wrap, plopped the dip in and spread it out to get a good surface area, and cold smoked with my Amaze-n-Smoker for about 5 hours with hickory pellets. Killer.

Hope you didn't work inside the next day. My experience with these when living up North was the next day was a good day to fumigate for any bugs. A bunch of guys at fishing camp drinking beer and eating ramps was really bad.
