I have tried this sauce recipe a few times with various mushrooms and would love to try it with ramps:

Anybody have an url for a source for ramps?

Thanks!

Made it once with fresh morels and has got to be one of the best things I have tasted! Dayum! :woohoo:

    I've seen garlic scallions at local farmers markets. I'm betting that is the same thing, and they choose that wording for sales purposes.
    Does a one horse town have farmers markets?

    Molly Molly . . . this one horse town does have a few farmers show up for a "market" but from my reading they
    start out in the Applilation (Sp) Mts in April and in Mich in May. Also called Wild Leeks.

    When I went to college in WVA they had "ramp" fests, and they would have to keep school age kids out of school that eat them because of the smell.
  • loco_engrloco_engr Posts: 3,673
    Yeah . . . emailed them yesterday about pre-orders, nothing :(

    I can bring you some to OKC, if you wish.
  • loco_engrloco_engr Posts: 3,673
    Sure! That'll be great!! Thank You!
  • If these are what you're looking for, I can send you some in May if you'd like. I sent some to RichardFl last year. Be warned, they are not for the faint of heart...

    For many years I ran a boat

    This Boat4943160380_0f7aef508c.jpg

    That was owned by a coal company in Charleston, WV. Every year when we were in town the owner would have a least one ramp party on board for a hundred or so of his cronies. The entire boat would stink for a week. If you eat ramps the odor will literally come through your pores and you will stink.
    They are delicios, especially with country ham and Jack Daniels, a lot of Jack Daniels :ohmy: :P :laugh:

    And they were great, but strong flavor as already mentioned. Want to trade some onions for spices?

    Richard,

    How are you sitting on smoking wood? more specifically fruit wood
  • Richard FlRichard Fl Posts: 8,081
    You have mail.
  • Rich - where & when did you go to college in WV? I went to WVU from '91-96...

  • oh wow... reading this brought back soooo many memories of my youth & family - my relations on my Mother's side live literally on the Mason-Dixon line, and their property borders a State park called the Mason-Dixon Historical Park & for many years, they would hold a "ramp festival" at that park - they had incredibly delicious foods cooked & seasoned w/ ramps (steaks, stews, etc), but the one thing my Aunt made that to this day I cannot stomach is - ramp wine!!! :sick:

    Yes, I said wine - she would make this wine out of ramps, and it tasted as bad as it sounds...

    Anyway, thanks for prompting a wonderful trip down memory lane for me!!!

    Oh, and ramps are very flavorful if you're in an area where you can get them...

    I went to Davis and Elkins 79-81 and Alderson Broaddus from 81-85. Spent several months at WVU hospital on trauma/joint replacement rotation.
  • wow, that's cool - so now where in NC do you live? I have a very good friend from HS who now lives in Wilmington.

    And NC is in the top 3 of the places I want to move to after I leave CA (can't afford to stay here & retire, and the politics of the State are KILLING it for everyone who's not an illegal alien - but that's a discussion for another time)...

    Anyway, point is - NC, either around Wilmington area, or RTP, or Charlotte - are places I've been scouting jobs to see what's out there...
