Ramps season is in early spring. The flavor is similar to onions, particularly like scallions, but wilder. They can be used just like scallions. In Appalachia, they are so popular that festivals are dedicated to them. They've been a staple of Southern Appalachian cooking for generations. If ramps are unavailable, feel free to sub regular leeks or scallions. Ramps butter is a versatile spread. Use it in any way you would use butter and onion or garlic, such as garlic bread or to cook your breakfast eggs. Courtesy of Birdworms & Buttermilk.
