milkmade flavor of the day: Ramps!
ramps are wild leeks that are found in the northeast during a short window of spring. they taste like half-onion, half-garlic, and garner quite a frenzy when they appear at the greenmarkets this time of year. we partook in the frenzy and sweetened ‘em up to make a ramps ice cream.
Ramps are back at it and so are we. This one is just such a fun unexpectedly good flavor — we released it to members May 2011, flavor #37, as a THIRD OPTION in our normal two flavor-of-the-month offering. Only like 8 people opted in. One of whom said, and we quote “That Ramps ice cream…. is insane.. I love it.” Not bad for an onion-y, garlic-y ice cream! Thanks MilkMade Member, Aaron G!
