A FLAVOR PUNCH FOR MANY DISHES!
Serves: Makes 1 pound
1 lb. unsalted butter, preferably Plugra, cut into 1 inch chunks
A large handful of ramps, cleaned and roughly chopped
freshly ground black pepper
Combine the butter and ramps in a food processor. Process unti ramps are chopped finely and butter is smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Using a spatula, scrape butter into a container with a lid. Refrigerate until firm.
Excellent for use with steak, fish and chicken. When ramps are out of season, you may use scallions in their place.
