In response to a question regarding ramps. My mama was born and raised in Nicholas County West Virginia. Ramps yes are in the onion family but a taste all their own. Come up in the early Spring in West Virginia around wooded areas, wilderness. Don't know if I have seen them elsewhere how bout you?
Cook like any wild vegie. Little oil or butter with garlic. YUM
I know what a ramp is in mechanical terms, What are they in the plant world?
not the only one YB. I was intrigued about cooking a 'ramp'. I await the explanation with great interest.
Not only that how big is the cook pot to get a 'ramp' into?
ramps have a very distinct smell and are all over the mountains here in wv,the blades are about 6 to 8 in. long and maybe a 1/4 to 1/2 in.wide.They are great with fried potatoes and eggs mixed.Dont eat them raw or you'll have bad breath for a week
oil & vinager refridgerate they last awhile that way..
Love this post and great thread..
