Lampascioni is the sorta thing you will NEVER see on a grocers' shelf outside of Italy. These little onions are the bulbs of the wild hyacinth flowers that cover the southern stretch of Italy. Prized for their intense aroma and delightful bitterness, they make for an incredible garnish to lamb or pork roasts. Smash them for a unique and intense bruschetta topping. If you want the real Puglian experience of Fave e Cicoria you have to have Lampascioni for the garnish.
