You can use them just like cultivated onions. I have wild chives growing all over my lawn.

Ok I tried one of the big ones. NO WAY. They are way to strong. But Bekka is out in the yard picking the little ones for the tops out of them. i will have to see what they taste like. The big one is so strong it is like eating a big one all by its self. One of these would flavor a whole 5 quart pot of chili and it is the size of a quarter.

Hey, I have been away for a while - sorry about that.
Wild onions !! Wow you are lucky, - you can use them in sautee, stews, and the flavors are so much more. Do use the green part. How large are they ? Are they in the woods or out in the open ? Are they more like chives or bigger like scallions ? ( at least that is how I know it to be )
The green parts of both of those are getting very expensive. I make a lot of tabouli so like to grow them and forage them.

Tabouli is one of the many chutney or cole slaw type salads in the world, but this one is middle eastern.
It is cilantro, parsley, chopped tomatos, bulgur, scallions, ( mint in some ) lemon, balsamic, and some olic oil .
I find that my tabouli is much better when I go seriously heavy on the scallion or chive greens.
I just love to dump it on everything . Israeli salads are also good.
Its also incredible with falafel .
Oh man, my mouth is watering.

Here are a few recipes, I would explore epicurian.com for recipes.
I did forget that garlic -


Tabouli Recipe
The Tabouli recipe is a healthful and delicious Mediterranean food recipe prepared with cracked wheat, mint, garlic, tomatoes, green onions, olive oil and lemon. An excellent picnic food idea, it tastes great chilled or at room temperature.

Spell it Tabouli, Tabouleh, or Tabule, there's no confusion about one thing-- it's a really nice departure from ordinary salad recipes, a vegetarian meal in itself.


Tabouli

2 cups cracked wheat (bulghur)
2 cups very hot water
1 cucumber, chopped
2 small tomatoes, chopped
1 bunch green onions, (Cool sliced
1/2 cup fresh chopped mint
2 cups fresh chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)


Dressing:
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon pepper
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste



Soak the cracked wheat in the hot water until the water is absorbed, about 30 minutes.


Drain any excess water, if necessary, and squeeze dry.


Combine the salad ingredients, including wheat, in a medium bowl.



Ingredients:
1 cup dry bulgur wheat
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 med. cloves garlic, crushed
black pepper to taste
4 scallions, finely minced (whites & greens)
1 packed cup minced parsley
10 to 15 fresh mint leaves, minced
2 med. tomatoes, diced

OPTIONAL:
1/2 cup cooked chick peas
1 medium bell pepper, diced
1 small cucumber, seeded and minced

Directions:
Combine bulgur & boiling water in a medium large bowl. Cover and let stand until bulgur is tender (20-30 mins). Add salt, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic & black pepper & mix thoroughly. Cover tightly & refrigerate until about 30 minutes before serving.

About 30 minutes before serving, stir in remaining ingredients (including any optionals) and mix well. Serve cold w/ warm wedges of toasted pita bread.

Hey thats nice - sounds like you have a lot of it !!
I have a lot of sand and pine where I am .
This is not foragable and by no means edible, but I discoverd over 20 lady slippers on my property. My neighbor and I were discussing possible chickens, and one area we thought they could run we discovered these plants !! They take eight years to grow , are endangered, so we won't be messing in that area. The chickens will have to play and run somewhere else Smile
