Because we're based in the Napa Valley, things like this catch our attention.  Can you imagine your next hike into the Sierra; your pack full of bars made from wine grape seeds? 

Gena McKahan, a student at Washington State, has a plan.  "The remains of wine grapes picked and pressed typically return to fields as fertilizers, but scientists are also finding ways to recycle those edible remains into healthy foods.

"Take Gena McKahan’s gluten-free, merlot grape-seed flour granola bar, for example. As a food science undergraduate at Washington State University, McKahan was curious how different amounts of merlot grape-seed flour would change a granola bar’s antioxidant content when baked with other ingredients.."

Now let's see...  Would a merlot trail bar go well with a nice bit of turkey jerky, as a kind of backcountry food and wine pairing? 

you can read the whole story here, from Washington State.

Go Cougars!

A friend of mine runs a wine bar.  People stop in on their way home from work and have a glass.

Grape seed oil is supposed to be pretty healthy.  I'd try one.

If it floats yer stick.......  Wine and me is instant heartburn. Never touch the stuff. Make it a Brown Dog Ale and it's a maybe. ;-)

Every time I have eaten grape seeds they have been really bitter and not very palatable.  I would not go out of my way to find them in a bar.  Grape seed oil on the other hand is a great thing to cook with.
