Great Gift: Pickled Ramps

Posted by


Recently, Matt Hranek, a talented photographer and my co-worker Yolanda Edwards' husband, gave me homemade pickled ramps as a gift. Matt and Yolanda have a home in upstate New York, where ramps were in abundance this spring. I love that Matt, who pens the blog The William Brown Project, where he documents his outdoorsy, make-it-yourself pursuits, pickled the ramps himself. The Weck canning jar, personalized label, and Hermes bag presentation are pretty impressive, too.

Pickled ramps make an excellent garnish for martinis. I plan on using them to top off our classic martini recipe. Plus, it's a great excuse to break out the Martha Stewart Collection barware!

  • Hi Kevin,

    I am unable to get any of the slideshows to work on my computer which is a brand new sony. I am really missing
    being able to access. I had this problem for awile on Martha's blog but that seems to be resolved. Unfortunately
    yours is still not working.
