I've been out gathering morels this week. The venison backstrap is from a little buck I got this season... the wild onions grow around my farm.

this is where I gather morels, and sometimes the venison...

Looks like a real treat to me.

The wild onions around here don't bulb out like that, and really aren't much good to eat raw.

We used to get a lot of onions like that back in Illinois where I grew up. I miss them They were always very sweet and mild.

Tim, I didn't know you were from Illinois...

The onions I use are really mild and sweet. I can use them raw. :)

We used to go out and collect morels and sweet wild onion. They looked just like yours. We would pick them with the idea of sautéing them with the mushrooms, but would usually eat the bulk of them before the pan got hot.


The ones that grow around here have no bulb at all and they are hard, even at the bulb end. It is an old Cherokee thing to chop them up and scramble them with eggs. I have done that a few times, but no matter how many of them I add to the eggs, I just can't taste the onion once it is cooked.:shrug:

Once again, I am jealous.

Cow Girl,

Thanks for posting those wonderful pictures. Makes me home sick for Texas!

Tim:

We always picked all the wild onions and garlics we could find in the spring. Those were the days when we lived all winter on canned vegetables and out of the freezer. We were just plain hungry for something green. I remember how good they tasted. Good Memories of hard times past.

Thanks for reminding me.:drooling:

:wow:

Its great when you can get all your food wild from nature. I bet the flavor was out of this world.

Thank you Jerry, Zeek, Tom, Mike and Garylee! Gary, I agree, it's nice to be able to gather or hunt what you need... I guess it makes me appreciate it even more. :)
