A big thank you to Janice Shofield for dropping her book off here at the Anchorage office while she was in town! If you enjoy learning about plants and their many many uses, this is the book for you.
Salmonberries are a big hit in Seldovia.
“Lillian Elvsaas of Seldovia, Alaska, say she peels tender salmonberry shoots and nibbles them as a trail snack. The spring growth is sweet in taste; shoots can be sautéed, stir fried or used as “veggie sticks” for dip.” –Discovering Wild Plants –Alaska, Western Canada, The Northwest. -Janice J. Schofield
