Ramps. Shad roe must be around too. It's cooking time.

Citarella (the village one) had shad roe at the weekend.

Robert, for what it's worth, I prefer Rockhill Bakehouse, but you have to make sure they don't put it in a plastic bag.

Any greenmarket news, anybody? Ramps? Ramps selling out early?

Ramps are in - check with Rick Bishop, the Potato Master.

Picked up some duck eggs for the first time in ages on Saturday. I had even forgotten how good they were: big, rich yolks.

Do they have any proper food?

Oh, it's all proper food - just silly names. There were heaps of ramps on Saturday. I know they can be pickled, but I don't suppose they freeze?

If you were to make a ramp puree, I'm guessing you could freeze it. Since the ramps are large now, slice the bulbs in half and chop the greens. Saute with a little garlic (!) and puree. Use the puree like an ersatz ramp pesto - we spread it on bruschetta and topped it with melted cheese to thunderous applause.

Overheard earlier this morning at the usgm:

A couple, eyeing the morels at $29/lb. Woman to man: "Go ahead, buy them. We're rich."
They're really rockin' on Bandstand.
