Burns and blindness: Toxic giant hogweed plant spreading in Canada
Timea Filer, an urban forester with the city. "So there appears to be a seed bank and we'll have to monitor it continually."Kraus said there is also a concern about a loss of native biodiversity, as giant hogweed is an aggressive plant that can outcompete native plants and spread — especially when it grows near waterways and its seeds are carried downstream. One plant can produce thousands of seeds and they can stay in the ground for years before germinating.The conservancy is asking people to document sightings of the invasive plant through apps such as iNaturalist, which helps scientists understand how the plants are spreading and identifies areas in which they need to be eradicated, he said."We also want to make people aware that they may have a plant in their garden which at some point could spread into a natural area and impact on biodiversity... or have public health impacts," said Kraus."Ideally you want to keep invasive plants out, but the next best thing is to detect them early and to remove them before they take over large areas."Kraus said Canadians who spot giant hogweed should contact local parks officials.Follow (at)AlyThomson on Twitter.

Sustainable. Organic. Local.
As for what to sip while you slurp? Abel Brown’s sommelier Steven Tsoukalas, CS, gravitates toward regions close to the sea, like Skouras Moschofilero, a white wine hailing from the Peloponnese in Southern Greece that “explodes with aromas of orange blossoms that temper its bracing acidity,” or Albariño, a Portuguese white from the northwest corner of the Iberian Peninsula. “It’s famous for its white peach and salty sea air aromas that complement shellfish of any kind. We sell out of one made by Aveleda every single week.”
Artisan coffee shop Buona Caffe is probably best known for their fresh, locally roasted beans and pour over coffees, but their loose leaf tea selection is just as well executed—and delicious.
Teas were always part of owners John and Pat Curry’s vision for Buona Caffe. Before they even opened up shop, they discovered Jasmine Pearl Tea Co. at a coffee convention in Portland, Ore. The company’s small batch approach and careful sourcing appealed to them and there was no denying the exceptional quality of their loose-leaf tea blends.
Loose-leaf tea offers several advantages over bagged tea, foremost of which are higher quality and concentrated flavor. “When you have tea in a tea bag, it’s almost remnants—or what we call “tea dust” in the industry,” explains Elisabeth Curry, Buona Caffe’s general manager and resident tea guru. “It’s like comparing freshly roasted, ground-in-front-of-you-coffee with instant coffee.” Because of its concentration, drinking loose-leaf tea can also be more cost effective as it lends itself to re-steeping, and since 50 percent of tasting tea is in the aroma, loose teas taste better too.
Today, Buona Caffe’s “small but thoughtful” tea program offers 10 different Jasmine Pearl Tea Co. blends, ranging from classics like Earl Grey to herbal infusions. The teas are now available for purchase by the ounce (prices vary depending on the blend) and make excellent gifts for tea lovers and novices alike, or treating yourself. Ruby Nectar, an herbal, fruity-tart medley of green rooibos, cranberry, grapefruit and hibiscus, is a crowd-pleaser that is also excellent iced, while the Feel Better’s combination of soothing chamomile, eucalyptus and ginger is like a dose of Zen with every sip. Ginger Peach, an understated Indian black tea with dried ginger, cardamom and peach extract, is fruity without being overwhelming.
Curry recommends a heaping teaspoon of loose tea per eight-ounce cup (one ounce of loose tea will yield approximately 10 cups of tea) and storing tea in dark or tinted canisters out of direct sunlight to preserve freshness. In the near future, she hopes to carry single origin teas (one type of tea) so that both the shop and customers can create custom blends.
Malvi Marshmallow Confections
Malvi Marshmallow Confections is Georgia’s sweetest new enterprise—and not just because of their irresistible “amply fluffy” cubes of joy.’ Husband and wife team Laura and Paris Retana, who met at New York’s Culinary Institute of America, make up the heart and soul of the family-run business.
While working as a research and development chef, Laura created her now-signature confection, a raspberry hibiscus marshmallow sandwiched between two dark chocolate shortbread cookies. “I have a tremendous sweet tooth,” Laura admits. “I’d come back home from working on pizza, sandwich and soup recipes and wanted somet...

Wintertime white wine beckons
And don't forget about the aromatic, floral varieties from Greece — grapes like malagouzia, moschofilero and vidiano — which make compelling wines that taste like vacation in a bottle. You may not be able to hop on a plane in the middle of a blizzard and escape to somewhere warm, but with a sip of that Greek white, you're practically there.
Most important, make sure not to serve these winter whites straight out of the fridge. You don't need a white wine to be icy cold, especially when it already is outside. Let the bottle sit for 30 minutes or so on the counter so that it's cool, but not cold. Too much chill masks the beautiful aromas and richness these wines have to offer.
At the right temperature, any of these wines are a great choice as we navigate this winter of ours.
