Just gloating a bit ala Carl
« on: June 04, 2013, 12:53:07 pm »
Sometimes I really enjoy living in Northern California. I am working on a local beer project (nothing organized, just trying to build a recipe or set of recipes based on local ingredients) and I decided a list of possible ingredients that are produced commercially in the county I live in would be a good place to start.

Found the UC Davis extension service website with a handy county by county alphabetical list of ag crops for Yolo county.

Just a quick scan delivers 34 different things that I think would might be a tasty addition to a local beer from Almonds to Cucumbers to sugar beets. the list doesn't even include strawberries cause I think they are kind of gross except fresh or as jam.

Add to that all the herbs and spices, specialty woods, super small scale farmers and ingredients I can grow myself in my little backyard garden and I have more options than I know what to do with.

I can even get my barley locally grown.

Okay gloat over.
