I am ashamed to say that ramps was not in my vocabulary.

I can't remember what country he was in, but I want to say it was like Italy or Greece or something like that.

I saw that one, too. They were slurping 'em up, weren't they? I don't remember the country, either, but I was thinking it was in the south somewhere (Louisiana, maybe?)
Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics.

Have heard of leeks, had never heard of ramps. At least not as a food item, LOL. Wonder if they would grow here. I have chives that I found growing wild along the Yukon river about a hundred miles from anywhere.

My Name Is Bruce AKA City Homesteader and I have been eating from the forests, streams, lakes, ocean, and fields since I was Born. My Dad was 1/4 Native American of the Penobscot Nation of Maine and English/Irish decent. His family came here when the first Boat came over the Pond to form this nation as Lumbermen. My mother's family is of Polish/German immigrant who homesteaded right up the road from my present home on a tract of land that they cut out of the wilderness and grew a dairy and ate from the land. We have been here Many generations and call over selves Stump Jumping swamp Yankees. As a Child I was brought into the woods when ever my parents foraged and learned from a very young age what to look for. Since that Time I have personally delighted myself with learn all that I can about the wonderful Natural world around me.
What I am hoping to do here.

Name of this Topic Is changed to draw the attention more towards this great resource around me..
We have been foraging foods out of the woods and fields around here since the first colonists landed in New England and were taught by the Native Americans what they could eat. We lost a large portion of that knowledge when we became Modernized. I would like to bring back these skills and help others to know what can be found to fill your stomachs if you ever find yourself without a store to buy your food. It just may help you survive when TSHTF. I can state that I am a student when it comes to wild edibles, but I have been a student since I was 3 years old and my Dad and Mother would take me into the woods and Taught me to pick berries, fruits, and fish the lakes and streams of our Great State of CT.
If that is something you are interested in learning or sharing please jump right in .

I had a friend from Maryland ask me if I had ramps here, and I replied "No, I have stairs". He just about fell over laughing.

Being from Commifornia originally, had never heard of ramps in a culinary sense before. One could bite me on the butt and I wouldn't know what it was. NO idea what they look like.
