Uniontown’s decades-old Sausage Feed offers links to town’s origins

Don’t ask Ken Oenning, or any of the 30 Uniontown, Washington, men stuffing 1,800 pounds of sausage into synthetic casings, where they’ll be smoking the meat. They won’t tell you. “We’re afraid that somebody can steal it,” Oenning, 71, said. “A long time ago, there was some people around here that lost a bunch.”

Savoring Nashville

The smoky aroma makes it nearly impossible to resist Peg Leg Porker, an old-school barbecue eater in downtown Nashville. As I stepped inside during a recent visit to the Music City, I was greeted by the sounds of grass-roots country music and Sun Records-style Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley rock ‘n’ roll.

Where’s the beef? Could be scarce in new federal diet guidelines

WASHINGTON – For years, the government has been issuing guidelines about healthy eating choices. Now, a panel that advises the Agriculture Department is ready to recommend that you be told not only what foods are better for your own health but for the environment as well. That means that when the latest version of the government’s dietary guidelines comes out, it may push even harder than it has in recent years for people to choose more fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and other plant-based foods – at the expense of meat.

Cooling game meat crucial to safe, delicious dining

Hunters, by law, are required to salvage the meat from game they kill in Idaho and Washington. Most sportsmen willingly go a step further and make sure the meat isn’t just salvaged but also kept in tip-top condition for safely feeding their families and friends.

Jim Kershner’s this day in history

From our archives, 100 years ago The City Public Market – a rough equivalent to today’s farmers markets – was apparently thriving at Stevens Street and Second Avenue.

McDonald’s supplier: Meat packaging issue isolated

NEW YORK – It isn’t a household name, but the company at the center of a food scandal in China helps make some of the world’s most popular foods, including Big Macs and Quarter Pounders served at McDonald’s. OSI Group, a privately held company based in Aurora, Illinois, was thrust into the spotlight last weekend when a Chinese TV station reported that one of its Shanghai plants repackaged old beef and chicken and slapped new expiration dates on them. The scare has ensnared chains including McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King and Starbucks, all of which got ingredients from a unit of OSI in the region called Husi Food Co.

Idaho rancher, yak an inseparable duo

When Lynn Taylor retired to North Idaho, he wanted to raise something fun and exotic, not your standard cows or sheep. He had no idea a decade later his “life partner” would be a 1,140-pound Tibetan yak that he rides in the mountains, drives around in a cart behind his ATV and invites into his home for a few dog treats on the couch. Meet Makloud the Yak, who Taylor raised as a bottle baby after the calf’s mother died.

Subway restaurants testing thinner meat slices, hummus option

NEW YORK – Subway is testing hummus and thinner slices of deli meats that look more appealing as it looks to keep pace with changing eating trends. Tony Pace, Subway’s chief marketing officer, said in an interview Tuesday that the chain began testing hummus as a topping in early April. Pace noted that many customers already order vegetarian sandwiches and that the chickpea spread would give people looking for meatless options another choice.

Meat Puppets bring enduring punk sound to the Hop

In the years he was in the spotlight, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain brought attention to a number of artists who might not otherwise have received notice. The Vaselines, the Raincoats, the Wipers, Daniel Johnston – they all benefited from Cobain’s cheerleading. None of them took the rock scene by storm the way Nirvana did, but there’s no question that Cobain played an integral part in their indie popularity.

Landers: Tasty meals start with proper care

Members of the Landers family relish dining on the wild game for a good reason: The deer, elk, turkey and other prizes I bring into our home aren’t “gamey.” I’m not a trophy hunter, so that eliminates some of the potential for tough or nose-offending game meat.
