Here is an herbed onion jelly recipe - I would imagine you could substitute ramps for the sweet onions mentioned and make something similar.

SURE-JELLŪ Herbed Onion Jelly

3 cups prepared juice (about 2 lb. sweet onions and 2 cups water)
3/4 cup white vinegar
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves(optional)
5 1/2 cups sugar
1 box SURE-JELL Fruit Pectin
1/2 tsp. butter or margarine

PEEL, quarter and finely chop onions. Place in saucepan; add 2 cups water. Bring to boil. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Place 3 layers of damp cheesecloth or jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared onions into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed, hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure 3 cups into 6-8 quart saucepan. Add vinegar and thyme.

MEASURE sugar into separate bowl. (Scrape excess sugar from cup with spatula to level for exact measure.) Stir fruit pectin into juice in saucepan. Add butter. Bring to full rolling boil on high heat, stirring constantly. Quickly stir in all sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.

LADLE quickly into hot sterilized jars, filling to within 1/8 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Apply lids that have been treated according to manufacturer's directions. Process in a simmering hot water bath at 190 degrees F. for 10 minutes. After jars are cool, check seals. Store in a cool, dark, dry place.

first thank you very much for that recipe i'll have to go out and get some more so i can try it.

now then went out today after fishing (report in cent oh under caught a few) and managed to find the mother load. was at a woods i haven't been to in a long time and they were so thick it looked like green carpet on the forest floor.took me a whole fifteen minutes if that to get all these.

now here is a close up of what they look like

this is before they are cleaned.
To clean first take and tap the bunch against your hand to remove extra dirt, seperate all the clumps or groups so they are all singles, then take a knife and cut off the roots as close to the bulb as possible. discard the roots then there is a skin on them remove this by pulling gently from the leaves down to the bulb and it should come right off. then wash in warm water thensoak in cold water if not preparing them right away.
this is what thye look like after they are cleaned

I dug up some Ramps at works on Friday. Brushed the dirt off them and offered them to "The guy that will eat anything". He loved them!! They went from being in the ground to his stomach in about 2 minutes! He asked me where I found them, I told him and he went out and came back with a bucket full!!!

I used to live in Elkins and they do have a big feed there. A lot of places in W.Va. have Ramp festivels every year. They had one in Clay co. where I am from once to buy uniforms for the band. I was fishing at Salt Fork today and you could the Ramps on the hillsides everywhere. Mom used to fry them up in an old iron skillet with potatoes was her and Dads favorite way. I hated it when I pulled into their driveway and Mom had the vent over the stove open when she was cooking them, she had the whole neighborhood smelling like Ramps and I cant stand them.

Think Like An Equine: Eat Your Weeds.

I made pesto from garlic mustard in our yard.
