Mesquite Harvest is On
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar
Sesame and I went out to our local mesa top for a bit of mesquite gathering this morning. We found hundreds of plants that were just starting to drop pods which was just what we wanted. I have been collecting the pods in fabric bags and dropping the entire bag in the sun oven for six hours at 150F when I return. The goal is to dry the pods to the point where they will grind easily into flour.
