Spring is upon us, and it’s time to get ramped up for ramps. (Yeah, we said it.) If you’re not familiar with this unique and quite tasty vegetable, you’re in for a savory treat.

Chefs and home cooks alike go crazy for this tasty delicacy through April and May. In celebration of the ramp-mania hitting the produce stand, we’ve gathered up 20 of our favorite recipes to get the party started.
