Ramp Festival

Monday, April 30, 2012

Ken and I did make it to the 22nd annual Mason-Dixon Ramp Festival yesterday afternoon at the Mason-Dixon Park in Mt. Morris, PA. We did lots of walking as the Festival covered more than ten acres.
The festival featured live music by several bands, crafts, antique cars, chain saw tree carving, the Lippencott alpacas and many stands featuring baked goods and fresh squeezed lemonade. Chef Walter Danna demonstrated ramp cooking. Diane's breakfast featured biscuits and gravy. I saw ramp jelly, ramp wine, hot ramp cider, ramp potato salad, ramp burgers, ramp pancakes, soup beans with ramps and corn bread, ramp potato soup, deep fried ramps, and ramp butter to name of few of the specialties. Ken had the soup beans with ramps and corn bread while I had a cup of the ramp potato soup. It was delicious!!

Ramps, also known as wild leeks and by their botanical name, Allium tricoccum, are edible plants that are similar to leeks in appearance and bear strong flavors of both onions and garlic. They are valued for their rich nutritional content. They are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Selenium and Chromium.
