Fresh Wild Ramps (Wild Leeks)

Spring Ramps fresh


Fresh wild ramps (wild leeks) are one of the treasures of  Spring. These wild members of the allium family are often called wild leeks. The taste is bright and fresh with distinctive taste of garlic and onion. (two of the best flavors rolled into one). If you don’t live in an area where they grow in the wild you have probably never had the opportunity to enjoy them. The Appalachain states celebrate the arrival of  ramps  with festivals in their honor. This is your chance to try ramps- but hurry- they don’t last for long. Then its back to grocery store green onions.
