I'm on a quest now to find a ramp.  I've never had one and am curious if it really does taste like an onion.

No, they look like onions but taste more like garlic. I can't imagine that you'd find them for sale where you live. They aren't cultivated and can only be obtained by foraging in the Appalachian mountains. They're only around for maybe six weeks and show up at farmer's markets here, and on menus of the more upscale restaurants. My advice is to plan a jaunt to NYC for next April!

Now folks, follow the very latest in All Things Ramps @AmpedForRamps!

Also, cocks

Those are big around here. They put them in veal sausages and tortellini. yummy

Miss Philicia:
Then you better fix the wikipedia page because it says that it's something not found outside of where I indicated.

mecch:
Well its a slightly different plant
In the US its Allium tricoccum and here its Allium ursinum.

Dachshund:
The jokes on you Ms. P. You thought you were eating Allium tricoccum but you were really eating Allium ursinum. Don't know how you missed that.
