Wild foraged ramps and fiddlehead ferns are early spring favorites, and among the first green things to grow after the winter. Native to North America, ramps grow from South Carolina to Canada. Long appreciated by country folk and eaten as a spring tonic, the ramp has in recent years taken on a mantle of cult status among chefs in fine restaurants. Edible fiddlehead ferns offer the taste of the forest. Deeply green and vegetal, they are prized for their delicate flavor and crunchy texture. Only available for a short time in early spring.
