The Green Beet: Dip Netting Frenzy

The red runs on the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers are in full swing, and the Soldotna/Kenai area is flooded with Alaska visitors ready to net their share of fish for the 2010 season. I’ve dip netted for years, sometimes coming home with my limit, other times with only a fraction […]

The Green Beet: Chickweed Spring Rolls

I’ve been enjoying some of my first harvest this week – radishes straight out of the ground, cucumbers out of a friend’s much-coveted greenhouse. This is also a great time to enjoy the wild plants popping up in your yards and along trails. This week my family feasted several times on […]

The Green Beet: Dining with Baby

The Green Beet: Dining with Baby

By Jen Ransom The other day I found myself with a bushel of bruised apples, still edible but not so appeasing to the sight. Not one to throw out food, I decided that I would make some baby-wise applesauce (sans sugar and cinnamon). Six cored and peeled apples, about three-quarters […]
