Every spring, we go a little crazy for ramps. Blame it on the thrill of foraging or a fleeting growing season -- either way, we're hooked. They're the cool older cousin of garlic, the feisty younger sister of onion. They add intrigue to the most familiar recipes and excitement to the simplest. We're mesmerized by all their wild glory, which leaves us clamoring for them at famer's markets, our eyes strained from hunting them in our own backyards.

But, rather than wax poetic about their allure, why don't we show you? Take a look at this beautiful video by Mario Batali, then go wild with these 8 recipes with ramps.
