Pity the poor Capercaillie, a large grouse found in Sweden. This bird feeds its young pine needles, which makes its meat taste like turpentine.
Alas for the grouse, the Swedes soak the bird in sour milk to get rid of the unpleasant taste. (How they get rid of the sour milk taste is not explained.)
I have just completed week three of 10 at Mission: Good Neighbors at Redwood.
Today, I am going to take a break from Good Neighbors and share some agricultural observations gleaned from my journey.
