Sauteed Ramps


Lightly steaming the ramps before sauteing will lessen their strong flavor.

  • 24 ramps, roots and greens trimmed, washed
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. On a steamer rack set over an inch of water in a saucepan, steam ramps, covered, until tender, 2 to 5 minutes. Transfer ramps to a work surface, and cut the leaves off, leaving a 4- to 5-inch stem.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add ramps, and cook, shaking pan, until ramps are warm and translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper; serve warm.
