Okay, here's a question about your favorite traditional subsistence food.
What is it and how do you like to eat it?

Mine is dried herring and I like it with a bit of seal oil.
Just so tasty and good for you.

(My least favorite is akutaq- no matter what berry or who made it, I just can't stomach the stuff... but my wife loves it.)

I'm going to have to go with the Kenai or Kasilof Red Salmon. Sugar cured, smoked and jarred.

Akutaq. As long as it doesn't have seal oil in it.

Agrees with Chilkoot, no seal oil! I love tasting other people's king salmon strips. I'm not talking Little Chief smoked either. Smoked inside a smoke house with cottonwood or alder, yum! Loves dried king salmon as well.

I am with Rance. One of my favorites dishes is a salmon fillet, rolled and stuffed with a scallop and tarragon paste, sliced into medallions and served with a white butter sauce. As a side dish I like it with young fiddle-head ferns, steamed, and served with an hollandaise sauce.

Of course boned ptarmigan, stuffed with wild rice and shiitake mushrooms, braised, and served in a port reduction sauce is pretty tasty as well.

Or maybe a Caribou Wellington. A caribou roast topped with diced mushrooms and garlic, wrapped in puff pastry, and served with a bordalaise sauce makes for a fine meal.

I better stop now, I am making myself hungry.

Spleen, how's the Cannondale? I'm going to call Paramount tomorrow and order a couple of rear gear cassettes, my old ones are shot. Also needs to order a couple new chains, one for the old Cannondale and one for my Giant.

Cannondale is cranking right along, no worries.
Does suck not having a bike shop anywhere near- but I brought my own bike tools to fix my ills...

To stay on topic, I still submit that akutaq = ickypooty.
