Onion Grass!

We have wild onions growing in our yard!

It looks like a weed, but it tastes and smells like green onions!  Not one to let free food go to waste, we went outside with scissors yesterday and cut the tops off…

We chopped it up:

Put it in the dehydrator for a few hours:

And now we have dried onions to use this winter!  They add wonderful flavor to soups and taste delicious sprinkled over baked potatoes!  And in the winter, there’s nothing quite like the smell of opening a jar of “fresh” summertime onion grass!

    I'm glad you stopped by! I'm looking forward to getting to know you too! The avocado salad with lime dressing on your blog looks fantastic! Right now our farm is just getting started, but in the future I'm hoping to do a lot more recipes and nutrition-related items on the blog! Enjoy! =)
