If Douglas Fir tip sorbet or stinging nettle pesto sounds strange or perhaps, horrific, you should tune into “Dig In Seattle,” when recipes like this are highlighted thanks to horticulturist Jake Pool of Northwest Trek Wildlife Park in Eatonville. Perhaps you’ll change your mind.
Part one of the two-part show aired on June 21, highlighting the native Northwest plants that reside at Northwest Trek and featuring Pool’s Foragers Delight Sorbet recipe, made with Douglas fir tips. Click here to watch Pool make his masterpiece on the deck of the park’s Hellyer Center, which overlooks Horseshoe Lake.
The second part of “Dig In Seattle” will air on July 5 on JOEtv. Not only will the show reveal Pool’s Stinging Nettle Pesto recipe, it will also include a tour of the park’s 435-acre Free-Roaming Area. Viewers will see a variety of animals, including American bison, Roosevelt elk, and Columbian black-tailed deer.
If a television screen doesn’t satisfy your want to see these Northwest animals in their natural habitats, take the family for a real visit to the wildlife park. From walking tours to nature trails, the Northwest Trek offers many options for a fun, educational day. Learn more about ticket prices and special events here.
