Ramp and Lion's Mane Mushroom Pasta

Depending on where you live its the start of farmers market season. I recently visited a newer market in Pfafftown NC and got some Ramps from a farmer that had driven 2 hours to his friends land to forage for ramps a spring wild leek often found in woodland. They look and taste similar to Scottish wild garlic and I remember having the best wild garlic and oil to dip bread into on our trip to Ireland last summer. The restaurant staff told us they also foraged for it in a local woodland area. Farmers are a wonderful bunch, passionate and hard working and are happy to share tips for their produce. I am proud to call myself one, after now farming on our little property in Yadkin County for 2 years.
