Deep fried Ramps?

I've been thinking of spring and all that comes...And what to do with Ramps? Maybe dill pickle'em like dilly beans? or How about a light tempura dip and deep frying them? Like lil onion fry thingies to dip in blue cheese or ranch? Or this one I will try cuz the roast is getting freezer burn...Alternate larding ramps with salt pork thru a large venison roast covered with a peppercorn rub? or Julian ramps mix with sauerkraut and brown mustard and smother your Hot dog/Brat/Wiener till overflowing. Heaven with a Guinness!(or Bev of choice).

Well not to downplay your deep fried idea Paulee (hmmmm) but we use ours in soups and stews. They freeze well I know. We also slice them thinly to use in other foods. but hey let us know how the deep fry thing turns out for you!!! lol

Deep Fried Ramps sound just fine to me Paul. I can't imagine any way of using them that wouldn't be good.
hmmm...You know... they DO have garlic icecream now...

Yumm, ramp ice cream drool... I had an urge last year for stuffed grape leaves. Miker recommended waiting till spring for harvesting(the leaves), now the timing might be off a bit but how about a ramp/grape leaf rice roll with diced saddles? About thumb sized held with toothpicks? :)

Cooking will take the "kick" out but leave the flavor. When you cook with ramps, you'd better want the predominate flavor to BE the ramps.

My family does have a rule if it doesn't have a "red leg" (reddish stem) and a strong onion scent not to pick. I talked to my mom she felt this was important when picking fresh ramp leaves to use because that's what her mom said. Neither one of us remember what was the "bad leaf plant" . Sorry not much help but I'm searching some data bases tonight to see if I can find it. Anyone else heard something like this? Ramps are to important to my happiness not to check this out! txs.
