For flavor, you can fry french fries with garlic too. If you live in Eastern North America, you can use ramps in place of Garlic. I always swap out garlic with ramps when they're in season.

Nice, I haven't ran into ramps too often here in Texas.

2017-06-29 22:28:48 UTC  

What the deuce is a ramp

2017-06-29 22:58:54 UTC  

Its an incline generally purposed for transportation across elevations

Ramps are a species of wild onion that grows exclusively in Eastern North America. They're best described as a cross between onion and garlic in flavor, but sweeter and milder than both. In texture they're similar to green onions. They're also called wild leeks in some places. They can't be farmed because they take years to mature from seed to flower, so they're exclusively foraged. I'm still lucky in that all I have to do is walk five minutes down to some wooded hills to find thousands of wild ones.

Most people don't know this, but Chicago was actually named after these wild onions. The etymology of Chicago was a Francocization of the injun word Shakawa, which referred to these onions, as they were plentyful in the area where Chicago was founded.

Or not Shakawa, *shikaakwa, according to wikipedia.

@Lupus_Dei - NC if you eat a mosquito burger and the mosquitos have been chowing down on AIDS infected jungle people, do you get AIDS??

Pork chops, bacon, sauerkraut, new potatoes, sour cream dill sauce. Jew/Muslim repellant. Good food of the Gods. Grows nice strong Aryans. 💪🏻

2017-07-04 04:13:16 UTC  

Sounds delicious!

Brad made this for me yesterday for lunch

2017-07-06 04:27:30 UTC  

I tried to grow beefsteak last year, but unfortunately many of them developed blossom end rot due to drought.

pineapple on pizza is the last implicit stand of canadian identity

2017-07-06 16:55:06 UTC  

Pineapple on the right pizza is amazing

2017-07-07 00:41:14 UTC  

Pineapple on pizza is my favourite. I also like it in burgers.

2017-07-07 00:45:38 UTC  

You upside down people are strange

2017-07-07 01:59:46 UTC  

@Archer - you'll eventually catch up to the future. Pineapple is a thing in the future.

2017-07-07 02:00:53 UTC  

Pine...Apple...does it come from a pine tree? My simple southern mind is not equipped to handle such odd concepts.

2017-07-07 02:07:16 UTC  

It comes from this @Archer :

2017-07-07 04:22:03 UTC  

@Archer I don't really care where it comes from but it's delicious.

2017-07-07 10:26:03 UTC  

Technically it's a berry. It's thought to have originally grown wild in and around what is now Paraguay and Southern Brazil.

2017-07-07 10:26:58 UTC  

The Spanish spread them around the world after they settled the area, like they did with corn, tomatoes, peppers and others.

2017-07-07 10:29:06 UTC  

The neo-marxists say we "stole" them from the redskins, but if anything we perfected them through centuries of eugenics. The corn and tomato strains we eat today are nothing like what the redskins grew.

2017-07-08 00:03:03 UTC  

It's an ananas
