Lamb, Ramp Jam, & Yams

Posted by dcarch (My Page) on

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?

Thank you Sol.

The ramp jam recipe:

2 cups ramps, chopped (leaves only)
1 large onions, halved and sliced
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
1/2 cup sugar
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoon butter
4 cloves garlic
½ box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin

Cook until onion becomes very soft
Blend everything to a thick sauce.

Chill and serve.

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

RE: Lamb, Ramp Jam, & Yams

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.

RE: Lamb, Ramp Jam, & Yams

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.

RE: Lamb, Ramp Jam, & Yams

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. :)
