Jeff and Alan,
Coincidentally, while you guys were typing your responses to me, I was actually in the kitchen doing more less everything you said as if I'd known you were going to say it! Lunch was a carrot risotto topped with skillet-seared ramps and white truffle oil. I decided on the pan-sear because it was the one way I could recall seeing them treated on something I saw on TV, but I tested one first to see how I liked it. And I liked it real well but realized what Alan said about how strong they are (that, and the odor in my car after driving them around for a few hours yesterday), even these tiny ones, and held to dividing one of my three bunches so that each serving had about 6 or 7. These are very small, and I think much smaller than I remember the ones on TV being--6-8 inches long, and most about 1/8" in diameter, and just a few verging on 1/4".
Thanks for your advice, it's reassuring.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
