  • Roadside Reflections...from the intersection of HWY 56 and the Americus Road.

The countryside is really starting to show the change of seasons. Before long,  you will be amazed to see how magnificently splashed with color our rural surroundings will become almost overnight. The prairie grasses will be turning brown and trees will start changing color. The red and purple brilliance of the wild plums, sumac,  broom weed and mass fields of soybeans with their yellow/green tinged leaves will be something to behold.  Hopefully, the roadside ditches and pastures, laden with milkweed,  goldenrod (ah-choo!) and purple ironweed will play host to the thousands of migrating Monarch butterflies that will float majestically through the air and make our journey through the country that much more enjoyable.  What would it be like to be free as a bird or float like a butterfly instead of doing the daily menial task called work?

 
  • Tim Webb, retired fire chief, Olpe and currently fishing the FLW Bass Pro Circuit will join the What's in Outdoors show to discuss his upcoming tournament schedule., trip to Canada and fall fishing patterns

Cold Pack Pickled Fish

1 quart fish (rib meat from carp, white bass or drum fillets)….makes around 3 pints.

2 medium yellow onions

3 C Kosher Salt

1 C Port Wine (White but red will work)

1 C Sugar

2 C or more of White Vinegar

2 C Water

2 Tbsp Pickling Spice

Cut meat into pieces no thicker than 1/2”. In a bowl place a layer of salt, then place a layer of fish, then cover that layer with salt. So on and so forth until you have used all the fish and then cover it with salt. Set in fridge 24 hours. Next rinse all salt off fish and place in container covering fish with white vinegar. Set in fridge 24 hours. In a sauce pan, mix 1 C port wine, 1 C sugar, 2 C vinegar, 2 C water, and 2 Tbsp pickling spice and bring to a boil and remove from heat. Clean onions and slice. Once the solution you boiled has cooled, strain out spices. In pint jars create layers of onion and fish until you reach the neck of the jar. Pour cooled solution in jar until all meat and onion is covered. Place ring and lid on jar and set in fridge 24 hours before eating.
