Wild Onions

Does anyone eat wild onions?

They grow like weeds all over the place around here. In the woods, in lawns etc.

I cut off the tops of some the other day and have been using them like onions recently and they have a pretty good oniony taste. In chicken soup they were especially good, and I also put them in omelets.

Just tasting them raw, it seemed like the thin, upper green shoots have a strong onion flavor. But further down the stalk, the taste was not as good; more harsh.

I wonder why people go so crazy about ramps (leeks), while these seem to be mostly ignored.

Re: Wild Onions

I always thought those were chives? Thanks for the reminder though about leeks. I think they should be ready early this year.
