Our woods and forests are stocked with many useful plants, for both our society and ourselves. Our unique ecosystem gives rise to some rare and luxurious things, such as maple syrup- dependent on a specific freeze-thaw cycle in the Spring to get the treesap running, and chaga- dependent on birch trees and cold weather to grow. Both require effort; they are some of the best flavors the Northland has to offer.
Local ingredients–local flavor
Chaga is a powerful adaptogenic, anti-inflammatory mushroom that grows in a parasitic fashion on (most commonly) birch trees. It is native to the Duluth, MN area, and therefore allows The Snooty Fox to offer a locally foraged supply of this impressive organism.
