Add rice and stir well to coat the rice with butter and ramps.
Add wine and stir until all liquid has evaporated.
Add chicken (or veggie) stock. Stir.
Close lid to sealed position.
Set on manual for 4 minutes (or high pressure for 4 minutes).
When finished cooking, quick release the pressure according to the manufacture's instructions. Remove the lid and stir! The risotto will look a little wonky, but stick with it!
Stir in the ramp leaves and allow them to wilt. Add lemon zest and stir.
Stir in parmesan and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add in chopped ramp bulbs. Cook until soft (about 3-4 minutes).
Warm 8 cups of chicken stock in a separate sauce pan.
Add in risotto rice. Stir to coat with butter and ramps then allow the rice to toast a bit, stirring for about 3-4 minutes.
Tip the white wine into saucepan and cook until all the liquid is evaporated.
Begin by adding a large ladle of warm stock to the risotto pan. Stir in a circle, around the pan until all the stock is evaporated. This stirring helps to release the starch from the rice.
Repeat steps with the remainder of the stock, adding in a ladle of stock and then stirring in a circle until the liquid is evaporated.
As you get close to the end of the stock, taste the risotto. You want the rice to be tender but al dente with a lovely chew or bite.
The risotto should look creamy and a bit brothy at this point. The Italians say that you should have a "wave", meaning that if you tip the pan back and forth the risotto will swoop back and forth like a wave. It will be sufficiently creamy and brothy to move as such.
Add in ramp greens and lemon zest and stir until greens are wilted.
Stir in parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper.
Pop on the lid and allow the risotto to sit for a few minutes. Then, serve immediately.
STORAGE TIPS:*Risotto will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.You can reheat in the microwave or on the stove top adding a bit more stock or a splash of water to loosen.
