    Scored some grapevine wood

    My wife and I have been visiting our favorite northern MI winery for over a decade, Chateau Chantal, and we stopped in there Friday. We know the tasting room manager Bill really well and so I asked about picking up some grape wood from them. He said we could scavenge their vineyards for some of last fall's prunings that they just mow up.

    A van full (made a mess on our luggage but that's part of the life of a stickburner).

      Wow, nice score!


        What will you cook with it, @huskee?

        Pretty sure I can get a fair amount (a lot of vineyards in my area), but not sure how I'd use it.
