Pickled Walking Onions
Yesterday I harvested our walking onion tops, and there were lots! I took out the largest 100 or so for fall planting, and here’s what was left:
There are plenty to share with friends, and to make pickles. My favorite recipe is a refrigerator pickle that we slice and use as salad topping.
I admit, the hardest thing about this recipe is peeling those tiny onions, but it’s worth the effort!
