Ramps (Wild Leeks)

Found these at a farmers market yesterday. They grow in the spring in hardwood forests. I ate a few this morning in an omlette and they were very nice....

I remember reading the old Grimm fairy tales as a child, and there was occasional mention of ramps. I didn't know what they were.

They look like a great sub for green onions. Wonder if they grow around here.

They grow wild around here. I don't know what they look like except prepared. There is a place nearby that sells them "by the bunch" with the roots still on...keep meaning to go get some. The season is mid-April through May. They must grow wild in Quebec, TL.

I get ramps from Oregon Mushrooms LLC They keep them frozen in the off season and they are just as good.

I got mine up in Barry's Bay. As I said, on the North side of hardwood forests, is what the guy told me. All along I thought they grew in the spring in areas with fast moving run off, like ditches and creek banks, etc...

I have never seen them pickled!

We used then fresh in scrambled eggs.

I don't remember having them any other way.

Maybe a new north woods martini featuring the pickled ones!

Isn't there a tradition in Spain where they roast ramps on open fires and serve them with Romesco sauce, or is that some other onion?
