Recipe by D. Todd Miller

Ramps are "wild leeks," in the onion and garlic family, and rather unique. If you live in the Appalachian or Allegheny Mountains, they may be growing wild in your yard! Ramps appear in early Spring, and may be mixed into hushpuppies or corn bread. This old recipe pairs ramps with potatoes.
