pickled ramps

8

Gathered ramps today. Every year I post on gathering ramps, but I think I evolve a bit each time. I now only get ramps that are no bigger then my index finger, and no smaller then my pinky. This is because I pickle the bulbs and the best bulbs for canning are that size. I also used a pressure washer to speed up processing a big time saver. I also now value the leaves more then the builds. I make pesto that I add to bread, noodles and hummus. It is one of my all time favorite flavors.

I made 7 cups of pesto, and pickled the bulbs.
