Nom Noms (pickled wild onions)

Post by BigJesse » Wed Apr 30, 2014 8:27 pm

I went out last Saturday (04/19/14) and picked A TON of wild onions. I mean A LOT. I had my heart set on pickling some for a while now. So thats exactly what I did. I didn't really follow any directions but they turned out great regardless. I just grabbed some things I had in the cupboard. I did a write up on the website of the recipe if you guys wanna check it out.

But I'm just curious if anyone has done something similar? If you guys have any recipes for the wild edible we all enjoy...

The recipe I wrote up: http://www.txbushcraft.com/pickled-wild ... -easy-way/

Now all you need is cold gin and a martini glass.

I don't have any special recipes but I regularly make chicken & dumplings, border patrol stew and cheeseburger macaroni & lentils using wild onions when they are in season. By far, cattails and wild onions are my favorite.

What's border patrol stew?

Also, Jesse, how did the cattail cultivation near the island go?

Collect about 5 or 6 Wild onions then clean, process and chop up. Boil up some water for macaroni. While the water is heating up, put 1 package of Seasoned Beef Crumbles in a pot with some garlic powder and the onions. The beef is already fully cooked so just cook until the onions turn translucent. Add 1 8.3 oz can of Bush's Country Style baked beans (or the next size up small can) and 11 packet of Wendy's Hot Chili Seasoning. (two if you like it hot) When the water starts to boil, add about a cup of macaroni or your favorite pasta and stir frequently so it doesn't stick. When it's done, drain off the water and add to the beef mixture. Add the pouch of Velveeta cheese and stir together. You can use cut up slivers of Pepperjack cheese if you prefer but you just have to stir until it melts. Rice can also be substituted for the pasta if you prefer. Lots of room for variations. Very hearty and very filling. Usually enough for two hungry men.
