Spring Forage

Need a ride to the airport?  Sure, of course, I’d be happy to take you.  Just repay me with ramps and morels from the wilds of West Virginia.*





Ramps and wild morels are quintessential local and seasonal eating!



And they are both delicious!



These tender wild Spring onions are awesome sauteed with potatoes as a breakfast hash.  Yesterday I pickled three jars of the tender white bottoms and am dreaming of all the ways to eat them once they are ready: bloody mary’s, chopped in salads, as a relish…



What’s your favorite Spring food?  Local asparagus is just starting to show up in markets and I am eyeing my sugar snap peas everyday hoping to spot a blossom.

Do you have any local, seasonal specialties you look forward to?
