Ramp Cognac Cream Sauce
This is a recipie for a ramp cognac cream sauce I made for peppercorn crusted ribeye. You can substitiute the ramps with, mushrooms(really good with morels!)to make a mushroom cognac cream sauce. Cayenne in small amounts (a pinch) gives a cream sauce more depth.
Ingredients:
• ¼ Cup Chopped Ramps
• 1 Clove Garlic Minced
• 1 Clove Shallot Minced
• 1 pt Heavy Cream
• 1 Tbs Butter
• ½ Cup Cognac or Brandy
• tt Kosher Salt
• tt White Pepper
• t Cayenne [p]
Preparation Directions:
• Have everything chopped and near by when you start. [p]Cooking Directions:
• Melt butter in a hot saute pan
• Saute the garlic,shallots and ramps till soft
• Deglaze with Cognac.(carefully this will ignite!)
• Reduce the Cognac by half.
• Add the heavy cream and reduce till desired thickness
• Seasone with salt,pepper, and the cayenne
• Serve over steak or any other grilled or sauted meats [p]Special Instructions:
• If using mushrooms add the mushrooms first let them cook for a while then add your garlic and shallots or else they will burn

    Jupiter Jim,
    They are a early spring/wild onion type of veggie.

    darnoc,
    Forgot to mention they have a broad flat leaf that sets it apart from the typical spring onion}

    Celtic Wolf,
    I am sure their season is done. I have a good amount frozen! Try the mushrooms instead works great! or just do the shallots and garlic. Hoss
