Wild Ashland County Woodland Ramps

Out of stock

Ramps have been used as food and medicine for hundreds of years. Because they are one of the earliest available wild edibles, they were considered to be a spring tonic by both Native Americans and early settlers. They are high in vitamins A and C, selenium and chromium and are thought to have been helpful in preventing scurvy and other nutritional deficiencies resulting from long, barren winters.
The annual tradition of gathering and preparing ramps has long been celebrated by communities in southern Appalachia. It is only in the past few decades that their popularity has spread beyond their native habitat.
Today, both the bulbs and the leaves are used to add the distinctive ramp flavor to eggs, potatoes, salads and soups. The shelf-life is limited to a few days, so some cooks freeze, pickle or dry them for use later in the year.
