This super-easy recipe helps extend the short spring ramp season, capturing the unique flavor of the wild leeks for an oil that can be used in salad dressing, for sauteing or as a drizzle on top of a creamy soup. It was inspired by just that finishing touch on a cream of salsify soup at Le Pichet in Seattle. Store in the refrigerator for up to two months.
