This week, we sat down with Jake Williams and Brigid Reina of Superior Greens, a microgreens company in Ashland, Wisconsin. Microgreens contain up to 40-times the nutritional value of their mature counterparts which makes for concentrated deliciousness. They can be spicy or they can be sweet and buttery, and every flavor in between. On eggs or on cupcakes, microgreens are a healthy and decadent food source. Jake and Brigid shared a recipe for a microgreen dish, check it out below.
Jim Northrup was a good friend and we used to visit him when he was finishing maple syrup in late winter.We would sit under a shelter around a big cast iron kettle. The kettle was hanging from a tripod encircled by chairs. There was a pit under the kettle for the base of the fire and firewood was leaning against the kettle all the way around. We sat there and Jim told stories and then he told more stories. Once in a while the boiling sap would rise and try to overflow the kettle.
