I know Im in the minority but I loathe garlic and onions and all of their cousins.
Well, just don’t come crying to us when the vampires get you!
Did you have some garlic wine, too? I wasn’t as fond of that as the ice cream.

LOL. What the heck is a “wild mountain ramp”?
A wild leek that grows above 4000 feet in the southern Appalachians, the first edible green of spring. Very pungent, they’ll clean your clock. Numerous festivals have sprung up around them, in Unicoi County, TN, Haywood County, NC and several other locales.
I know that the Frugal Gourmet suggested that you open a bottle of red wine, put 12 cloves of garlic in it, then recork it. Wait a month before using it as a cooking wine for roasts, spaghetti sauce, gravy, etc. Yum.
Wow! never heard of it. I gotta check it out. Is it like a bitter green? Clean your clok?
That would be ramps, right?
More like a turbocharged onion, lol.
Too bad. We planted four varieties of soft and hard neck garlic this year - maybe 300-350 plants. Some will be given away, but most will feed the troops.
Do yourself a favor and find a select roasting variety (Inchelium Red) and roast it until golden brown with olive oil and cracked black pepper. Squeeze the garlic paste from the skin and blend into softened sweet cream butter. Let it rest for a day in the fridge. Pick some sweet corn straight from the stalk and husk it walking back to the house. When you step in the door, toss it into the boiling pot. Boil three minutes, shut off the heat and let cook for three more minutes. Take out, drain and dredge in the garlic butter.
Betcha you change your mind . . .
P.S. I did this most of the summer.
Bet the mosquiotos haven’t been bothering you!
You and my husband, though the veggie he despises most - peppers! Sweet, hot, doesn’t matter, he hates all of them. but he loves Brussels sprouts - go figue.
Our son, on the other hand, can’t eat most foods unless they are covered in Cayenne pepper sauce.

Nothing beats Japanese ice creams. Don’t mean to offend, but what is wrong with them??? Yes, the have garlic.
Yo, give me one scoop of pit viper and one scoop of viagra.
