  • 4 oz ramps (1 bunch, or about 5 medium), roots trimmed off and cut into small chunks (green and white parts)
  • 8 Tbsp unsalted butter , divided
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt , to taste
  • Pepper , to taste


  1. Wash the ramps thoroughly. My method for this is chopping them and then placing them in a bowl of cold water and stirring them around. I then scoop them out of the water (after letting the dirt settle to the bottom) and dry them with a clean dish towel.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp butter in a small saucepan over medium and add ramps. Let sauté for about 5 minutes or until completely softened. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

  3. Transfer ramps, remaining butter, lemon juice, and a dash of salt and pepper to a food processor. Process until a green butter has formed (I like to keep a few chunks of ramps in my butter but you can process longer if you'd rather have it creamier).

  4. Serve right away or transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
