The Traditional Pinyon Pine Nut Picking of the Navajo

I found this video of traditional pinion picking that I thought was really interesting. I went with 'family' a few times to pick pinion in the high country in northern New Mexico. It's tough on your hands and fingers for sure but the time spent out in the fresh mountain air and the camaraderie of all who are together to wild harvest is just wonderful, plus salt roasted pinion are delicious.
