PSU Study on Ramps / Wild Onions

I Thought this was interesting article PSU looking at ramps as a local food / agricultural product as well as research into events and festivals

If any one knows of festivals in PA, you might pass the info along to these folks so that they can talk directly with foragers

I heard of a Ramp-Fest in Greene County, but cannot confirm

Ham and Leeks, Crappie Fillets and Leeks, Eggs and Leeks and Pickled Leeks. Always a feast Late April and Early May.

Thanks for sharing. I'll add this to my list of what to look for this year during my first morel hunt. The wife will like this as well.

I dehydrate the bulbs and grind them into a powder. Its awesome on fried eggs and makes a great meat seasoning.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

That ramp festival in Greene county is real. May 19th is the ramp dinner and wildflower walk.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

Was going to mention their vitamin c content and their use as a spring tonic but see they are already on it:

If Sunday hunting was not already illegal, who among us would not laugh at making it so?

I am not so sure publishing a lot of information about ramps and their benefit, in the mountains of PA is a good idea. If enough people start to ramp hunt and perhaps hunt them to sell it could be detrimental to the the plant numbers.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Could be a smelly situation right there.

It sure would lower the customer count in small intimate bars and clubs.
