It feels like a few short weeks ago there was snow on the ground… that’s because there was.
With this heat I was beginning to fear we passed right over spring and went from winter straight into summer. Thankfully the forecast is calling for cooler temperatures soon.
A sure sign of spring; ramps are available right now. These little buggers are only going to be around for a few weeks or so, so get them while you can. They pack a fresh garlic, onion flavour and can be used in place of either in most recipes.
I decided to make good use of some chicken stock I had made recently and turned some of the ramps I bought from Wendy’s Mobile Market into soup. The potatoes I used came from Hoey Wagon Farm.
