Familiar to those who have traveled to Europe in the springtime, ramsons or ramps are wild chive relatives frequently foraged from patches growing unattended in deciduous woodlands and parks. These tasty early spring greens are now showing up on trendy restaurant menus as flavorings in salads, soups, sauces and even substituted for basil in pestos. If you have a bit of wooded landscape with well draining soil, and are feeling adventurous, give these hard-to-find members of the onion family a try.
Love the zippy flavor of home-grown onions and their relatives? See our Garlic & Shallots section for additional choices.
