The trail’s influence on our state can be seen in the landscape, in the rugged commitment Oregonians show to forging new paths and seeing ideas to fruition. To celebrate the 175th anniversary of those who came before us, this year you can hike among the wagon wheel ruts and visit the interpretive centers. But you can also celebrate a new Oregon Trail––the Oregon Tasting Trail.
These days, winsome Oregon pubs and breweries set a very high standard. The challenge, now, is determining where to nd the most memorable experiences. No doubt we’ve all had many good times with a great beer in our hand, and we have both our regular hangouts and our special reserve list of must-visit places we share with our friends. But if we were to play our highlight reel, which of these experiences bubble to the surface?
Fresh herbs are easy to grow here in Oregon. Most of the hardy varieties and some tender varieties will survive the cold winters. Growing herbs yourself makes it easy to pick what you need, and the freshness is unmatched.
Fresh herb blends are especially key to getting the herbal flavor you want without overshadowing other ingredients in a dish.
