Lamb, Ramp Jam, & Yams

dcarch7April 24, 2014

After I made gefilte fish for Passover, it's time to make something for Easter!

I grew some ramps in my garden, they all came up.

Leg of lamb was on sale for $2.99 a lb. So I made sous vide leg of lamb with ramp jam. Batata yam was on sale also, at $0.75 a lb, normally $1.55 a lb. So I made roasted Batata yams.

After that I had leftover ramp jam, so I made a ramp pizza.

Happy Easter!

Beautiful plating Dcarch! I'm intrigued by the 'ramp jam,' it enhances both, the lamb dish and the pizza - and I'll bet they taste even better.

So...did you choose the ingredients so they'd rhyme?

What did you do to the bone to get it to look like that? Talk about presentation!

Thank you Teresa!

I came up the idea in a cooking competition. It was a tough competition. I had to RAMP up the ate. :-)

It is very easy to do. About 2 minutes with a Dremel tool.

That jam sounds wonderful. I do have a lot of leeks started, but I have never tasted ramps, or seen them around here. Now I want some. According to google it seems like they would grow in my climate, though it doesn't sound like they favor evergreen forests. Worth trying a patch in the garden, though.

Had to google batata yams, too, lol. Produce challenged, I am.

Oooh! I just figured you'd used a kitchen tool. Love the dremel for food styling! And the frond in the bone is very cool. :)

Had a very fancy dinner tonight. Nothing approaching the beauteousness of your plates, though. :)
