The folk medicine reputation which holds both Ramps and Wild Leeks to be powerful healers turns out to be well deserved. They are high in Vitamins C and A, and full of healthful minerals and have the same cholesterol-reducing compounds found in garlic and other members of this family.
The most popular way to eat or cook ramps is to fry them up and then add in other ingredients or to use them chopped and added into biscuits, cornbread, and casseroles.
These bulbs can be pickled or fermented and preserved for the winter.
