Jun 17, 2010 — Residents of Upper Saranac Lake are fighting an invasive water plant with a book about food. Their new cookbook, with hundreds of recipes, comes with an environmental message.
In 2004, lake residents began an intensive struggle against the destructive milfoil with an underwater dive program that harvests the invasive plant by hand. It's an on-going challenge. All the proceeds from The Upper Saranac Cookbook will be used to fight eurasian water milfoil on the lake.
Todd Moe spoke with lake association member Marsha Stanley about the new cookbook and the battle to control milfoil.
