    Molly53's Note:

    The flavor of ramps is similar to onions with a touch of garlic, particularly like scallions, but wilder. They can be used just like scallions. In Appalachia, they are so popular that festivals are dedicated to them. They've been a staple of Southern Appalachian cooking for generations. Scallions (white part only) may be substituted for the ramps. Cooking time is approximate.

      Molly53....should be called the ramp queen! I am not much of a ramp eater, but my husband gets a few messes of them from friends every year. Usually we just boil them or fry them in potatoes. He ask me to find a different recipe this time. Which is where you come in. I tried your soup and he really liked it...matter of fact, said that this could be his all time favorite way to have ramps. I followed your recipe to the letter, except I added 1 1/2 T. of ham base. Which gave it a little extra ham flavor. Other than nailed it on the head. Thanks for submitting your variety of recipes for ramps. Next time I will leave some of the tops on, they had already been cleaned and removed this time. TeresaL
