Used to have ramp digging parties when I was a kid.

Yea, couldn't be around anyone after eating those things...

Yum, had them many times years ago when a friend had a house in Arbovale WV. We would head into Durbin and have scrambled eggs with ramps for breakfast!! Ahhh the memories!

We just moved from a townhouse in the city to an 11 acre property in the sticks. We've got ramps growing around the property but I didn't know exactly what they were until I researched your post. I thought they were green onions.

Care to share your brine/pickling recipe? We are working on growing our first batch of vegetables and we are planning to do some pickling and canning for the first time.

I pickled 4 quarts (about 4 lbs) of freshly gathered ramps yesterday.

I soak them for 2 hours in 12 cups of water with a cup of pickling salt mixed in.
When done rinse very well in a colander.
Bring to a boil in large pot: 6 cups white vinegar, 3 cups apple cider vinegar, 6 cups of sugar, 4 tablespoons of yellow mustard seed, 1 teaspoon of turmeric, 8 whole cloves and about a dozen chopped hot peppers of your choice (I used habenero). Pack the cleaned ramps into 6-1 quart sterilized canning jars with 1 teaspoon of pickling crisp per jar and ladle in the still boiling liquid into each jar until ramps are covered (about 1/2" from the top). Put the lids on and let sit for at least 2 weeks before using.
