August 18th, 2013: Greg and Jon revisit one of their very first "Food Guys" topics: "Follow-the-Sun Pickles." Cucumbers, spices and liquid are stuffed into a jar, rotated in full sun for eight hours, then stashed in the basement for three days. An example of the nearly-instant gratification of the summer menu.
"The fruit is the easiest way to tell huckleberries from unrelated plants. However, if no fruit is showing, the leaves and stems are where to look. Huckleberry leaves are always alternating along the stems, unlike many look-alike plants that have opposing leaf patterns. Huckleberry leaves are broad and lance-shaped, and their stems make a zig-zag pattern. They grow mostly on mountain slopes, at medium to high elevations."
August 10th & 12th, 2013: Hyssop is spicy, warming, & antiviral. Its sweet aroma attracts humans, and its purple flowers attract honeybees. Hyssop should be avoided during pregnancy. http://www.floradelaterre.com
