Thanksgiving side dishes

There’s nothing like picking wild mushrooms to bring out the gatherer in a person.

It can also bring out the chef — just in time for Thanksgiving.

This is the time of year that mushrooms start popping up everywhere, aided by the rain.

To cook with the fleshy fungus, the gatherer not only needs to know exactly what mushrooms he or she is looking for, but pick the freshest variety.

“There’s a small window of time,” local chef Devon Morgante said about picking mushrooms. “You’ve got to get them pretty quick.”

After finding the treasure in the woods, clean the mushrooms and keep them in a paper bag in a safe spot outside or in the refrigerator, he said.

Morgante used chanterelles, hedgehogs and a king bolete picked locally —  a mushroom gatherer never reveals secret picking spots — to prepare wild mushroom and caramelized onion tarts and ravioli.

Hunting for pheasant

Del Norte Rod and Gun Club, Lake Earl Grange and California Fish and Game recently sponsored the Junior Apprentice Pheasant Hunt as part of the Game Bird Heritage Program on Oct. 31.

Over 30 young hunters age 15 and under were provided an opportunity to hunt game birds in a relaxed, safe environment, which provided all participants a greater chance to bag the game bird, which was pheasant. Local dog handlers provided their dogs to retrieve the birds for the young hunters.

We wish to extend our gratitude to our local sponsors for their generosity. Coast True Value, Englund Marine and Wal-Mart provided shooting glasses, hunter-orange hats, vests and prizes. Thank you to the many, many volunteers who gave their time and energy to make this an enjoyable and successful event for the youth of our community.

We are hopeful that next year we will be able to expand the number of hunters for this event.

Open Door Community Health Centers, Del Norte County agencies and Del Norte County businesses, with funding from the University of California Health Initiative of the Americas, worked together again this year to increase awareness of health and human services available in our community for county residents, with special emphasis on immigrants, migrant workers and their families.

The Binational Health kickoff this year was held at the Del Norte Community Health Center of the Partnership for Prescription Assistance, “Help is Here Express” bus, on Aug. 7.  The bus travels the United States helping the uninsured find access to free or nearly free prescription medicines.

An essay contest for students in grades 5 through 8, in cooperation with Del Norte Unified School District, was again held this year with winners announced at the Harvesting Health Fair, on Oct. 18, held at Smith River School, which included ethnic foods, health screenings, children’s activities and community services information.

Prizes for this contest were provided by Chetco Federal Credit Union and the Del Norte County Binational Health Collaborative.

A chill in the air. Rain’s return. Crab pots stacked along the docks. Quickening river currents and rowdier seas. All around us are images of Del Norte County slipping into its wintertime wardrobe.
