Deb and I took a trip to Tallahassee yesterday to visit with Rich and not only did we replenish our grits supply, we lucked into a couple packs of ramps! When we got home, we also found two jars of pickled ramps in the truck! Thank you very much Rich. And Maria was right, you can smell the pickled ramps outside of the jars. Both jars were sealed and you could still smell them. We ate a few when we got home and I can't wait to try them on a salad as they have a very unique flavor.
One thing that I don't get about Rich, (Woodsrunner) is that being in his seventies and "retired", he works harder than most folks who are not even close to retirement. And that's after retiring from the Navy and the Forestry Service. I wish that I had half of his energy. Anyway, thanks for all the stuff and it was great seeing you and Maria.
