Feast of the Ramson in Richwood, W.Va.

Ramp FeedI didn't know about ramps, really, until I moved to Charleston. There, I learned their appeal to natives and even had my first ramp.

Richwood, W.Va., touts itself as the ramp capital of the world - and others oblige. They seemingly grow better in the area, and to commemorate the honor, they host their annual Ramp Feed each year. 

I wrote about this for Spotlight WV Magazine. Check it out.

The festival has crafters, performers and, of course, the ramp dinner. Ramps, ham, bacon, potatoes, cornbread and brown beans. Tasty - utilitarian - but good.
