Subject: Re: Polk salad and rampy stuff
Saturday night I had dinner with a native of Asheville, NC, who told of
the culinary delights of ramps. I believe that he also said that
Asheville has a ramp festival. The proximity of Ashville to eastern
Tennessee obviously suggests a regional term; I had never before
encountered ramps here in eastern NC.
Is "ramp" equivalent to "rape"--the vegetable, not the crime?
