My only hope was my Facebook Messenger account wasn’t being monitored too close by legal authorities.
Me: Is it cut? Is it clean? What size bag? I’ll be driving through that side of town and can pick it up. How much?
This wasn’t a script for a drug deal, I promise. It was a conversation with my friend about how to purchase wild onions, a Native American delicacy that bonds a culture each spring.
My friend Kendall Bread came through for me a few years ago with two gallon-sized bags of fresh, clean, cut wild onions. Each gallon was $20 and well worth the price.
When the grass greens up each spring, it is wild onion season. The harvest begins with the picking process, continues with cleaning, cutting and — my favorite part — eating. With a March 12 birthday, my mom always tried to have a wild onion meal ready for me.
