Dr. Cowan's Garden Wild Ramp Powder
Wild ramps are a rich source of such valuable minerals as selenium (which supports immune function), chromium (needed for blood-sugar regulation), and iron (for production of healthy red blood cells). No doubt, their nutritional richness derives from their mining the humus from the cool forest floor.
The wild ramps in this powder were foraged in May from the Appalachain Mountains of West Virginia. Wild ramps are rare in the marketplace because their season is only a few weeks long, and they grow only on the forest floors of the eastern United States and Canada. Also, they grow slowly and take up to four years to flower and reproduce, so sustainable harvesting is a must.
This powder is a delicious way to add a wild vegetable to your daily diet. Wild and perennial vegetables are key to diversifying vegetable consumption (and to ensuring optimal health) because of their extra-rich nutrient content.
Because the powder is stored in a Miron jar, this tender and uniquely flavorful plant is now available for year-round cooking as a delicious powder.
