Spring Highlights: Ramps, Shrooms, Shad, CrabsPosted: April 3, 2012
Spring is here! Spring for me is a turn of a new year in local food. The goats down the road are kidding and producing milk for the first of the season’s fresh chevre. Wild Ramps are shooting up in the woods followed soon by morels, both signaling the first of many wild foraged ingredients. Shad fish are spawning in the rivers and have large, rich and delicate roe. Blue Crabs are malting and making way to crispy and sweet softshell crabs preparations.
