Re: Leek season..

What we call leeks here in northern appalachia are actually ramps as the southerners call them .I don't know why the different names in the different locations. Yes they are strong! It is sort of a cross between onions and garlic. The cultivated leeks are totally different than these. Again,. I don't understand the name"leek" in the wild version. It is just what everyone calls them. Gotta love us rednecks!! I froze 8 gallon bags, 2 qt. bags, made 3 pts of dip, and saved a gal. fresh to eat. I intend to dig some more in abt a week,when they're bigger, to pickle.My house smells like leeks!!!!
