Here is a good recipe for cooking Trout on a campfire it includes using Ramps (Ramson) as part of the ingredients. If you are partial to Ramps then you will love them cooked with your Trout! If you are camping anywhere in the Appalachian Mountains you can find Ramps. A little advice, don’t eat these if you plan on going to work or anywhere in public for a few days. Ramps will leave a very strong odor on your breath that will cause some people to run. HAHA. Enjoy your Campfire Trout dinner!
6 Potatoes chopped
1/2 bag of Baby Carrots chopped
4 Celery sticks chopped
Cherry Tomatoes cut in half (optional)
7-8 chopped Ramps
Olive oil or Butter
Put the chopped veggies in a clean, plastic bag, add a splash of olive oil, pepper, salt and whatever dried herbs you have. Dish out about a cup of the mixture onto sheets of aluminum foil, wrap loosely leaving small hole in top and grill over open flame or in the coals of your campfire for up to 30 minutes. Next for the Trout, (best part) cover inside and out with salt, pepper, cut 7-8 small Ramps (Ramson) cover the fish lightly with butter adding the Ramps on top of butter, so they stick to it. Wrap the trout in a oven bag tie it loosely and wrap in foil. Cook over campfire for 15 to 20 min per side depending on size of trout.
