For those of you who love fiddleheads and ramps, we have them available in our farm stand.
Fiddleheads are a New England spring delicacy and are actually young fern fronds that have not yet opened up. They must be picked during a two-week window before the fern unfurls. Fiddleheads are named for their appearance, which resembles the scroll at the head or top of a fiddle.
The ramp, sometimes called wild leek, is a wild onion native to North America. Though the bulb resembles that of a scallion, the beautiful flat, broad leaves set it apart from scallions.
Ramps grow from South Carolina to Canada. It’s flavor is usually compared to a combination of onions and garlic.
