I just came across this list of ramp recipes. Larry, I don't remember whether you do eggs or dairy, but I'm sure you can adjust these if you don't: http://www.seriouseats.com/2015/04/r...g-recipes.html

Just a note re: wild asparagus--genetically, wild asparagus and cultivated are the same--if you don't have access to "wild" asparagus, I wouldn't spend the money on ordering it, I'd go with cultivated or getting it at a local "pick your own" farm. Often strawberry pick-your-own also have asparagus.


I prefer wild--but that is because there is an emotional attachment to the memories of stalking the wild asparagus with my dad, mom, brothers, and extended family. And the season coincided with the opening of walleye season in the spring.

I love asparagus but the season here is very short so I'm extravagant and eat as much of it as I can. The stuff that flies in from Peru for the rest of the year just doesn't hold a candle to the home grown stuff. Like some wine, I don't think asparagus travels well.

I tried growing some once. Gave up after 3 years when I was still only getting the fern. My last-but-one cat is buried where the asparagus bed was.

My secret vice is asparagus steamed over a pot of spaghetti, then cut into small lengths and tossed with lots of butter and a little garlic into the drained pasta.

Ive got some asparagus in the garden. Just poking their heads up ( saw the first one today). Hopefully they will still be coming up after I get back from Mississippi. Last year I had to move them. Not realizing how deep their roots go, so Im not sure what Im gonna get this year.

But, out east there is an " Asparagus tractor". They park the tractor ( bright green) on the side of the road, with bunches of asparagus for sale. They use the honor system. There is a cash box out there. Take a bunch of asparagus and leave your money in the box. Kinda cool that something like that still exists where I am.
