    Default Tremont road section 10-15-18

    I havenít posted a report in a while, so here goes. I fished multiple stretches of the gravel road section yesterday evening from about 3 until it was too dark to see my fly (ended up thunderhead when I finally quit)


    Fishing was pretty good, everything on the dropper (pink weenie).


    Walked out with a delicious pile of fresh trout!

    Looks good to me. What did you fix with them?

    Well I like to have ramps with my trout, so in the spring I make several pounds of ramp butter so I can get that flavor year round. So I cooked some asparagus with ramp butter and a garlic butter pasta side.

    Ramp butter? That sounds good to me. Basically how would I go about making that?

    Thereís a lot of different methods out there, I like this simple one.

    I use about 5-6 ramps per pound of butter. Let the butter warm up until itís slightly soft (usually just get it out of the fridge and do the next steps)

    Blanch the ramps: (the ramp butter will keep longer if you do this)
    Wash the ramps, get a pot of water boiling and toss the whole ramps in for about 30 seconds, then quickly remove them and dunk them straight in to ice water. Pat them dry and finely dice them up.

    Mix the diced ramps with the butter and knead until itís pretty consistent.

    I re use the wrappers from the sticks of butter and devide the ramp butter into logs about the size of stick of butter, or Make larger logs wrapped in parchment paper.

    Ramp butter will spoil in the fridge! Store in the freezer. I just cut off what I want from a frozen log of ramp butter and throw it into the skillet. Itís great for sautťed vegetables or on trout or really anything.

    LOVE the ramp butter recipe!
    Now how did you fix the trout? Looks like you were baking them? Did you put any butter or something in them?
