A ramp by any other name is just as stinky.
Ramps go by a lot of names. You may have heard them referred to as wild leeks, wild garlic, or ramson. They’re alliums, which means they’re in the same family as onions and garlic. They taste and smell like a cross between onions and garlic and they have many different uses.
Ramps have a very short season in the early spring, which means the people who want them have to be quick about it. Some people like to eat them raw, but be careful because in some places they’re known as the “King of Stink”. They can also be chopped, sauteed and added to just about any dish, including stir fries and scrambled eggs.
Ramps contain some of the same health benefits as other alliums, including an ability to help fight cancer. They’re high in vitamins A and C, and they have been used for centuries as a blood cleanser, although no studies have been able to confirm their ability to do so (source).
