Inshore Classic Fishing Tournament Starts Sunday Celebrating its 13th anniversary, the 2018 Nantucket Inshore Classic Fishing Tournament starts this year on Sunday, September 9 and runs through Saturday, October 13. The big news this year is that standings for the Fly Fishing Division and the Junior Division will be determined by length using an approved measuring device supplied by the Tournament that will be photographed with the fish. This change is in response to strong interest in conservation and increasing positive support from Tournament participants who have endorsed the Catch and Release Division since it was established three years ago. The tournament is an individual angler tournament. There are four divisions: All Tackle, Fly Fishing, Catch & Release and Junior. Each division has separate categories for fish caught from the beach or from a boat. Species eligible for prizes are Striped Bass, Bluefish, Bonito, and False Albacore. Prizes including rods and reels, tackle, beach passes, gift certificates, and local fishing charters will be awarded in each division and category. In the All Tackle Division, prizes will be awarded to the Angler with the heaviest combined weight in each category and for the heaviest fish of each species. There will be weekly prizes as well. Catch and Release, Fly Fishing, and Junior Division prizes will be awarded to the Angler entering the longest fish of each species and to the Angler with the longest total length entered. There will also be weekly prizes. Participants do not need to be at the closing ceremony in order to receive their prizes. continued on page 11

The Responsibility of Privilege by Robert P. Barsanti It has gotten later in September. Downtown, the stores are closing earlier in the evening. Fewer clerks and salespeople wander the racks, and the man behind the register is a good bit older. He may be doing the crossword when you walk in, and he may not look up. Each weekend, from now until Halloween, has teams of wedding partiers descending on the altars, dance floors, and bars, but they are gone by Monday night and the streets settle into a slow waltz. The corn is full, yellow, and may have a worm. The tomatoes, both red and purple, are heaped in bushels, lined on window sills, and consumed for lunch and dinner. Without a hurricane spinning up the coast, the south shore beaches have been calm, although the water contains seals, sunfish, and sharks. Most of the Suburbans, Yukons, and Range Rovers have headed back to the schools and towns that they claim on the back windows. The Sturgeon Moon is upon us, and on its flood, many of the sailboats and motor cruisers head out. The gigantic boats remain, as their owners no longer worry about vacation days and school years. The Mirabella, The Northstar, The Podium. I have no desire to join the yachtsmen at the end of the wharf. I will only trespass beyond the sign that bars me: “Yachtsmen and their Guests Only.” I assume life on a real boat is not like the one on TV. The reality show “Below Deck” focuses on the emotional adventures and misadventures of a group of young people crewing a 100-foot-long yacht in the Mediterranean. Each show begins with the preparation of the crew, then the arrival of the guests, the various hijinks and travails of people paying $200,000 to rent a boat for a week, then the final justice of the captain divvying up the tip. The crew claw like sorority house dropouts, the guests sink continued on page 12

AAN 10 x 10 Exhibit Includes Community Art The Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is delighted to announce the opening of the 2018 10 x 10 Open Exhibition with a reception on Friday September 7, 6–8 P.M., in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street. The show will be on display through Monday, September 24. The majority of AAN exhibitions feature work solely by AAN artist members, however this annual 10 x 10 Open Exhibition is open for participation from the entire island community. Each participant may submit up to seven pieces of work. Now in its fourteenth year, the 10 x 10 Open Exhibition is a popular and beloved AAN tradition, with every piece in the show measuring 10 inches by 10 inches. The work is hung in a grid-like pattern on the walls throughout the two-story gallery. “It is always a fascinating show and amazing to see the many different ways an artist approaches a 10 x 10 canvas, all the same size yet each piece has its own individual character,� said Peter J. Greenhalgh AAN gallery manager. “The walls are literally covered in a mosaic pattern that is not often seen in galleries. It is a favorite among our artists as well as our visitors, who come to the gallery to see the works done by their friends, neighbors, and community members.� The Solo Show Spotlight Artist during this exhibition is Rosemary Glidden, who will also lead an informal discussion at the Spotlight Series Artist talk on Saturday, September 8 at 10 A.M. in the gallery, 19 Washington Street. The 10 x 10 Open Exhibition will be on display from September 7–24 at the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street, in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural District. To learn more about the AAN, visit nantucketarts.org. For further information about AAN 2018 programs and events, please call 508-228-0722.

ISLAND COOKING

Feeling Lucky by Maryjane Mojer

NANTUCKET WALKING TOURS

Bartlett’s Ocean View Farm

Providing Quality Tours Since 1998

“The harder I work, the luckier I get.â€? And I’m feeling pretty lucky these days. I come from a family of workers. My Dad, a mechanic, felt his value was directly linked to what he could accomplish in a day. Retirement was not something he gracefully embraced. Waking up, getting dressed, filling his pockets with change, his favorite knife, a 20 mm open end box wrench, and a pair of ignition pliers meant he was ready to help. After working a full day, he would come home, head to his garage and wait for someone to pull up who might need something fixed or looked at. In 1974, Mom, who was an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) and a waitress, decided that she would run for Town Clerk. A few years before this, she realized that she wanted her driver’s license, so she started making phone calls and was able to get an Adult Education Driver’s Ed class going. She didn’t know how to type, so she contacted the typing teacher at NHS and an Adult Ed typing class was underway. She then took out papers, and, driving her old, tan station wagon, went door to door, introducing herself to people who may not have known her (it was the mid 1970s; there were few people, if any, that did not know one another.) She always ran unopposed, and the last year she ran received 98% of the vote. Talk about a vote of confidence. She loved her job, and truly took the phrase “public servantâ€? to heart. When I think of my folks, it is no wonder that I am a lifelong learner. I get such satisfaction from trying something new, whether I excel at it or fall flat on my face‌sometimes quite literally‌and from helping people achieve their goals. continued on page 10

ISLAND PAIRINGS

Bucket List by Jenny Benzie, Advanced Sommelier of Épernay The most wonderful time of the year on Nantucket has arrived, and that means there is a lot to accomplish in the next few weeks. Restaurant week will soon be approaching to leisurely enjoy a repast at your favorite local dining establishment without the crowds. You look forward to hosting a festive cocktail party to celebrate and spend time with your friends and neighbors that you haven’t really seen much in the past few months. Before us is an opportunity to enjoy some of the finer things in life that our fair isle has to give in the last few weeks of summer. Here are a handful of perfect pairings for island indulgence as a reward for making it to other side of summer and into the next season.

We are always looking for the perfect pairing. The right shoes with that amazing dress, Mr. or Mrs. Right to spend the rest of your life with, and the more common one is simply a decadent wine and cheese pairing. Riesling is an often misunderstood white grape varietal and frequently judged before even opening the bottle. But this aromatic wine has more to offer than meets the eye on the wine label. Reeve “Prism” Riesling from Mendocino County is a small batch California wine label by Noah and Kelly Dorrance. Missouri natives now based in the Dry Creek area, this winery that follows biodynamic principles and organic farming is named after their young son. The wine is called Prism because they know that great Riesling has the power to have such “an array of flavors and aromas that calls to mind the refraction of white light into Technicolor.” Aromas of pear and rainwater are followed by a green apples and lime zest. The finish is shockingly dry, almost zingy with a juicy edge of acidity, and a perfect addition to any neighborhood table. Thinking outside the box, these qualities are what make this wine a perfect accompaniment with a hard, aged cheese. Beemster XO is a premium Dutch cheese from South Holland made from cow’s milk. It is an artisanaged Gouda (“how-da” as the locals pronounce it) revered for its rich flavors of butterscotch, whiskey, and pecan. It has a deep ochre colored interior and a firm, crumbly texture. Even though it is aged for more than two years, it still has a creamy mouthfeel along with its crunchy, mouthwatering crystals due to its aging in wax that surprises the palate. Serving this coveted favorite cheese and delicious wine combination will make you the talk of the town!

LOBSTER MEETS ITS MATCH Nothing like indulging in lobster to complete your summer wish list on Nantucket. A staple of New England dining, you don’t have to venture far or wide in order to find the perfect lobster dinner. Souza’s Seafood, located mid-island, is a complete retail fish market that will cook and crack your lobster for a dinner to take home or take to the beach. All that buttery richness and the full texture, yet slightly sweet taste, of lobster is well-complemented by Domaine de Masques Viognier “Viognadictif.” The estate where this wine is grown and produced is located in a small village, high up in the region of Aix-en-Provence of France. It stands at over continued on page 14

Island Cooking: Lucky from page 7

September 6-19, 2018

who are committed to excellence, striving to improve every day, and committed to their chosen profession. Most Chef’s that I know go for the simple and sublime on their days off. Eating out is a great option when possible, and this time of year is the best time to relax and savor the fruits of someone else’s labor. If staying home, great fresh ingredients are what they reach for when they’re hungry. In-season, most kitchen staff rarely get time to stop and eat a meal. Though many places do a family meal, someone still has to cook it. At the end of a seventy hour week, it’s not unusual to realize that you haven’t actually sat down to eat a meal all week, let alone had anything that required a utensil. While we all don’t work in kitchens, we are so driven by dates, trying to squeeze that last beach bash or dinner, or sail (or sale!) before the clock strikes Labor Day that it’s easy to get into a rut and not eat as well as we can and should. A green salad, quick pasta, or simple grilled fish can recharge your batteries, especially when sitting at a table and taking your time. Remember how that feels? Conversation? Actual plates? Maybe a glass of sparkling cider or wine? Nantucket is full of best kept secrets in September. The beaches are secluded, dinner reservations accessible, you can hear each other at the Cisco Brewery, and these are all great things. Yet, even though summer residents and visitors have left the island, fishermen are still fishing, farmers still farming, and markets are still stocking their shelves. Take some time, go out and talk to the local vendors. Find out what’s fresh, what’s good, and ask advice on how to cook something you may not be familiar with. If fresh herbs are more of an idea than an experience, ask how to use them.

I work hard because I enjoy it. The sense of accomplishment (thanks, Dad!)... the joy of a new skill and making a difference (thanks, Mom!)... and the thrill of supporting and watching others realize their own success and grow in their own way fill me up. In Dad’s day, you chose a profession and stuck with it from the first paycheck to the last. I did not follow that path. In high school, I was certain that becoming a DJ and having a radio show was the right path for me. I was accepted into a program in Boston, but Mom would have none of it. On to Plan B, which was Mass Bay for Horticulture and Landscape design, with a certificate in Floral Design. I used all of my knowledge and skills and worked as a designer and landscaper before starting a family. Once my kids were here, I followed in Mom’s footsteps started waitressing, which I loved. Mom truly enjoyed it as well, and told the greatest stories about the food, the characters and, at times, the customers, including a well known mobster who got a little handsy. My first and favorite waitressing job was at EJ Harvey’s on Pleasant Street. After one of the night cooks didn’t show up for the second or third time, EJ asked if I wanted to learn how to cook. Even now, remembering my first nights on the line, my tentative cuts with a real knife, the batch of fried clams that I dropped into the sizzling fryolator, I get goosebumps. This was the start of years in restaurants: learning, making huge mistakes, trying again. Branding my arms with “kitchen tattoos” or burns and cuts. My Uncle Jack took a SIMPLE GRILLED FISH WITH HERB BUTTER look at my arms many years ago and said to my Mom, “her arms look just Soften a stick of unsalted butter. Add about a quarter cup of chopped like Mother’s use to, don’t they?” Highest compliment ever. fresh herbs. Don’t be picky, don’t get tied down with what goes with what. Baptismal by fire indeed. Really. It’s been a long, hot summer, cut, chop, savor the aroma and mix. I am not a classically trained chef, have not graduated from Culinary Add a grind or two of salt and cracked black pepper, and a pinch of crushed School, and Michelin Stars are the furthest thing from my mind. Even so, I red if you feel like it. have earned every one of my service stripes and scars treading the mats and Maybe it’s the rebel in me, but I do love to use my cast iron pans on my making myself at home on the range in many kitchens.

Inshore Classic Fishing Tournament from page 3

Participants will receive a distinctive long sleeve tournament t-shirt, a tournament I.D. pin and a tournament measuring tape. They will also be invited to attend the kick off and closing awards parties at the Anglers' Club featuring raffles, a raw bar, and hearty hors d'oeuvres. Tournament results will be announced daily by e-mail, on the radio at ACK FM, and on line at so participants will always know where they are in the standings and the size of the leading fish in each category. The main mission of the Nantucket Inshore Classic is to promote and enjoy the exciting fall saltwater fishing on Nantucket while at the same time raising funds for the Nantucket Anglers' Club Scholarship Fund. Organized by fishermen for fishermen, the five-week duration of the tournament was chosen with the intent of attracting as many anglers as possible. Local anglers can participate without the pressure of a shorter tournament and fish whenever their schedule permits. Visitors or people unable to be on island for the entire tournament can still join in the fun and have a legitimate chance to catch a prize-winning fish. Many anglers sign up for the tournament when they attend the kickoff party at the Anglers' Club to be held this year on Saturday, September 8, at 5pm. Interested Anglers may also register to participate any time prior to or during the tournament. Brochures, entry forms and rules are available at Bill Fisher Tackle, Nantucket Tackle, and the Nantucket Anglers' Club. The entry fee is $50 for the All Tackle, Fly Fishing, or Catch and Release Divisions. For anglers choosing to fish in two divisions the entry fee is $75. For all three divisions, the entry fee is $100. Juniors under 16 participate for free. For details about the Tournament, go to the Nantucket Inshore Classic Facebook or Instagram page or to Nantucketanglersclub.com.

Responsibility of Privilege

from page 4

into their privilege as if it were black silk sheets, and the Captain sits at the wheel like a substitute teacher with a cool hat. “Below Deck” money connotes privilege, not responsibility. The guest can send back the soup for having onions in it, the wine for being too warm, and the inflatable slide for not being slick enough. The workers need to endure all of it because they hope for another reality tv slot somewhere else, and they want to get that tip at the end. The tip justifies every indignity and tantrum. Some people view Nantucket this way. I can see how the mistake gets made. As we enter wedding season, with forty or more blessed ceremonies each weekend, the island hosts one long country club party that starts with dresses and suits lined up on Brant Point and ends in the Ladies Room at the Chicken Box. The guests write checks with lots of zeroes for house rentals, catered lunches, and van rides to Cisco Brewers. Many of the waiters, musicians, and fishing guides are tanned, young, and beautiful. Their future careers may not involve carrying trays. During the wedding season, the island becomes the backdrop and workers the supporting characters in this weekend’s production of “Your Most Wonderful Day.” And if your Day isn’t, someone needs to pay. From the perspective of the woman holding the Kate Spade checkbook, we are all “Yachties.” The caretakers, the bartenders, the cleaning staff are getting paid to execute the vision of “Your Special Day.” We may have our off-screen dramas, but they are not allowed to slip into the performance. Our silent agreement, between the one who gives and the one who takes, is that the tip supersedes and silences all. But Nantucket is judging a long running argument among the wealthy. One side argues for privilege; my

September 6-19, 2018

American Express card does not just buy a boat, a house, or a shirt, it also buys the freedom of indulgence. If I am buying a sandwich and the phone is busy, I can stand inside, amid twelve other hungry folks, and rant at the unfairness of a busy signal. The demand democracy of the phone has been denied; I cannot get what I want if you leave the receiver in the mixing bowl. Responsibility speaks on the contrary side. Wealth, earned or found, conveys a responsibility to make the world better. The dance, the golf tournament, the dinner allow the wealthy to do something to help others. Solid citizens with sensible shoes may argue that Palliative Care at the hospital is more worthy than Community Sailing, but both agree with Saint Luke: To whom much is given, much is expected. Nantucket would not be a Plutocrat’s playground were it not for the responsibility cashed in by others. No Land Bank, no Trustees of Reservations, no Jetties Beach, no Atheneum, no Historical Association, no Cottage Hospital: all of these organizations collected checks from people who knew they were the lucky sperm. At the same time, I just cleaned out a rental house with holes punched in a wall, tile hammered from a bathroom, the door unhinged from an outdoor shower, and a “soiled” mattress. The deposit won’t come close to repairing all that was damaged. Yet they packed up their car, bagged up some garbage, and left. Bill me. To be entitled is to live without witnesses. To be responsible, is to live for the witnesses. To be entitled is to live outside of society and history. Nobody will remember, nobody will admit, nobody will say. To be responsible is to catch the eye of history and society. Someone will remember, someone will admit, someone will say. After sore education, we graduate into responsibility. The sins of the past resurface in a sad later. Recently, two young men were hitting golf balls into Long Pond. Both were accomplished strikers of the ball. The two drives I witnessed soared, then slid gently sideways in a draw before splashing down. I came upon them from behind, with my boon companion. He went leaping and barking among his new friends and they, in turn, gave him the love and affection which he deserves but is too often denied. There was neither surprise, nor shame at being discovered. I asked them, as friendly as I could, if they were going to dive down and get the golf balls. They smiled and said “Maybe later.” Later comes sooner than we think.

grill. Sure, if I want to stand at the grill, gingerly turning my striped bass so that I don’t drop a single delicious morsel into the flames, I can, but I prefer to simply use my grandmother’s 10” skillet. I leave the pan on the grill and close the lid so it heats up as the grill heats up. Let it go for a good fifteen or twenty minutes, and don’t keep opening it to check. Have all of your prep done before you open the grill to put the fish in. Start your vegetables on the grill first, so they’ll be done when the fish is. This will work for any tender filets such as salmon, bass, halibut, and cod. Swordfish and tuna just really should be directly on the grill. If it ain’t broke… Pour a glug of olive oil into your pistol hot skillet, and add a small knob of herb of butter. When the butter stops foaming, add your fish filets, and season with salt and pepper. (On the side with no skillet, your asparagus or grilled vegetables should be almost done.) Keep the top open, and after about four minutes, check to see if the bottom is nicely browned. If so, flip the fish, close the lid, move the vegetables to the top rack of the grill (or wrap in foil and keep on the flame) and walk away for about 9 minutes. Toss the salad, pour the wine, tell your dining partner that dinner is ready and have a seat. Nope. Not in front of the tv. On the deck, or at the table or on the porch. Simple fish, simply enjoyed. Raising a glass to you all, with hope for a happy, healthy, easy fall.

550 metres above sea level on the Cengle plateau overlooked by Mont SainteVictoire, the well-known emblem of the region thanks to painter Paul Cézanne. Winemakers Sébastien Ballester and Yves Cuilleron craft this beautiful 100% Viognier wine that is fresh, full bodied and with a rich, aromatic nature. The delicate nose is dominated by floral aromas and fleshy yellow fruits, such as peach and apricot. The mouth reveals a fine freshness while being full bodied and silky, balancing well with the sweetness and softness of the shellfish. Oh-la-la!

WEEKEND 2018

SEPTEMBER 8-10, 2018

Knowing who your farmer is makes all the difference. The taste, texture, and tone (color) of caviar is as much about where it comes from as well as the species of caviar. Calvisius Caviar Oscietra Royal is extracted from the sturgeon of the same name, also known as Russian Sturgeon. This elegant caviar has a subtle fruity and nutty flavor, with tones of dark brown to beige in color. The pearls are medium to large in size, and the velvety yet firm texture is complex and persistent in character. The caviar comes from Calvisano, a typical Italian farm town located in the middle of the Po Valley, an area rich in fresh spring water—the foundation of the ecosystem that enables Calvisius caviar its authenticity and freshness. Our duo would not be complete without a Champagne of such great quality to match. Eric Rodez non-Vintage Blanc de Noirs Champagne is bubbles of pure happiness. This ninth generation vineyard manager and head oenologist was once the may of Ambonnay, the Grand Cru village where this wine comes from. Eric was also the cellar master at Krug where he developed his winemaking and blending methods that would later be employed on his own estate. He hesitates to use the word organic, because he is not certified, but as a grower he uses no pesticides, fertilizers, or synthetic sprays on his plants in his efforts towards organic and biodynamic farming and water management on the estate. This Brut Champagne is made from 100% Pinot Noir. It

In September, over 200 golfers will gather for a long weekend of golf and social events for the second annual Nantucket Golf Weekend to benefit Nantucket Cottage Hospital. The highlight of this year’s Nantucket Golf Weekend will be The LPGA Legends Charity ProAm, featuring 18 of the greatest names in women’s golf including Jane Blalock, Pat Bradley, Donna Caponi, Laura Davies, Julie Inkster, Nancy Lopez and others. Golf events will take place at Miacomet Golf Club and Sankaty Head Golf Club.

In addition to the ProAm, we look forward to our 28th annual Swing Tournament at Sankaty, which includes a barbecue luncheon, an afternoon round of golf and an evening reception.

is complex yet elegant, with a slight hint of red fruit and offering a longer finishâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it can handle the richest of wishes and caviar dreams.

ROSĂ&#x2030; ENDEAVOR Rain or shine, we will always have rosĂŠ. Imagine setting sail for a sensational sunset cruise on the waters of Nantucket with your favorite bottle and an entourage in which to share it. Sail aboard the friendly sloop Endeavor with Captain James Genthner on the boat that he built himself. The Endeavor is the longest operating sailing charter on Nantucket, with more than 30 years charting our local waters. It is located in Slip #1015 on Straight Wharf, just a short walking distance from any location in the downtown area. Regular daily sailing cruises are offered May through October, with a tour of Nantucket Sound as the tĂŞte de cuvĂŠe during the prime time as the sun sets into the horizon. No matter your previous sailing experience, you are welcome to help the crew set sail or simply relax and enjoy the ride. An experience of this magnitude requires a bottle of magnanimous size as well. chene Bleu â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pont des Artsâ&#x20AC;? RosĂŠ, RĂŠserve SpeĂŠciale, 10th Anniversaire en magnum is your answer to such an equation. This winery owned by Nicole Rolet has achieved Super RhĂ´ne status for their high quality, biodynamic wines grown and produced in the mountainous UNSECO heritage area Dentelles de Montmirail in the Southern Rhone. This wine is a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah, all from old vines with low yields that adds both complexity and a long finish to the wine. What also sets this wine apart is that it is a collection of art work as well. The label was designed by wellknown Spanish contemporary artist Miquel Barcelo depicting a bullfight, a perfect way to illustrate the â&#x20AC;&#x153;fiestyâ&#x20AC;? nature of the wine (and how some may feel during the grueling months of working all summer). OlĂŠ to that! As you compile what is on your end-of-summer Nantucket bucket list, hopefully this is a time for you to take a deep breath and care for yourself and your family first after tending to the needs of others for awhile. It also enables us the opportunity to relax and regroup, with an eye on our island community involvement as the seasons evolve and when the weather begins to change.

They numbered in the thousands and thrived not only due to their cultivation of corn and beans, but because of the richness of the environment around them. With the convenience of modern agriculture and mass production, it’s easy to forget about the local harvest that supported generations here on Nantucket. So let’s fill our bellies, feed our souls, and have some fun in the process. Grapes can be found growing wild in many different countries and climates around the world. We love them for their sweet snack-ability fresh or dried, in preserves, and, of course, made into luxurious libations. During late summer, clusters of wild grapes can be seen hanging from vines all across our island. The vines do best in full sun, so keep your eyes peeled along roadsides and trail edges, over fences, and around tall trees. One species native to Nantucket is the Fox Grape. They can be found in a variety of island habitats but seem to do best in moist soil, which is why they are plentiful in bogs and swampy areas like the UMass Nantucket Field Station in Polpis, Squam Swamp, near the Hidden Forest, and around Windswept Bog. The flowers and heart-shaped leaves are easy to overlook in the summer, but once late August turns into September, Fox Grapes the smell of grapes adds sweet notes to our salty sea breezes. You definitely smell them well before you see them, so get in the habit of keeping some fruit buckets in your car for impromptu harvesting. Just make sure that you are not picking on private property (or, if you are, get permission). Though the flavor of the Fox Grape is considered to be too potent for wine making, they are nice for a nibble on your hike, preserving in jams and jellies, or juicing. They’re also delicious in sweet sauces and reductions. Fresh grapes freeze well and the leaves are edible, too. Try them in salads to enjoy their bitter, citrusy flavor, or blanch some for your own homemade Dolma. For bread bakers who want to try an old fashioned challenge, the skin and berries of wild grapes attract wild yeast (the white powdery substance on the skins), so grapes can be used to make sourdough starter. To make delicious and rich grape preserves with wild grapes, first pick and pick over 6 cups of grapes. Wash them well (twice at least, three times if they are sandy), and pick out all remaining debris. Then put the grapes in a heavy pan with 6 cups of white sugar. Stir and heat to a rolling boil, then turn down the heat down as low as you can with it still boiling. Boil for 20 minutes. Cool slightly and then press the grape mixture through a strainer to remove the seeds and skins. Stir the preserves, put them in jars, and use your usual method (heat or paraffin) to seal.

When colonists first came ashore in the 1500s, they couldn’t miss the hardy beach plum. Prized for centuries and cousin to the domesticated fruit of the same name, the beach plum thrives in windswept sandy soils from Maryland to Maine. The round, purple fruit contains a large pit and has bitter skin, making it unpleasant to eat raw. But when the fruit is processed into jelly, juice, or wine, the flavor is as distinctively rich as it is deliciously deep. Beach Plums Beach plum shrubs tolerate salt air, but do not reliably produce fruit: many varieties set a crop only once every three or four years, even if they bloomed heavily. Their white flowers bloom during May and June. The fruit that follows (when it follows) is usually ripe enough to pick by the middle of August into September. Most varieties of the fruit are a dark purple when ripe, though smaller than commercial plums found in the store. If you are lucky in your foraging, you can sometimes find a slightly sweeter golden variety. If you see a bush with a brightly colored ribbon tied around it, know that it was already claimed by a fellow forager and find another place to pick. If you’d like to try cultivating beach plum shrubs, check out Oikos Tree Crops, a nursery in Michigan that sells three varieties that can grow successfully on Nantucket. What should you do with your beach Prepping beach plums for jelly plum bounty?

FOX GRAPE PIE CRUMB TOPPING 1 cup flour 3/4 cup sugar 2 tsp. Cinnamon 1/3 cup butter, softened Mix until crumbly. FILLING 4 cups of grapes, cleaned well 1-1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup flour 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons butter, melted Rose Hips

sure to include some not-so-ripe plums to take advantage of natural pectin), sugar, and extra pectin if needed. Try adding a cup of port or red wine. Simple though it is, these jars of claret-colored jelly will be prized gifts come winter. Beach plum jelly tastes like a floral version of a not too sweet grape jelly, and it’s delicious on a PB&J, as a condiment with meats, or spread across an English muffin. Another forageable food you don’t have to search high and low for on Nantucket Island are rose hips. Impossible to miss, the small orange and red orbs can be found in late summer and early fall on the rosa rugosa that grow virtually everywhere in the sandy soil of Nantucket. They’re probably on the path you take to the beach and along the road you drive on to get there. A native of East Asia, the beach rose was introduced into the United States as an ornamental plant in the mid-1800s. By the early 1900s, it was reported growing all across Nantucket. Rose hips are the seed pods left behind when the delicate roses drop petals and fade away. The hips ripen in autumn, when they turn bright orange-red, and if you can wait to harvest them till after the first frost, they will be easier to work with. Though it is most commonly found dried in teas, the cranberry-like flavor of the rose hip has many other applications in the kitchen. They make a brightly flavored spread not unlike marmalade, sweet and versatile syrups— even ice cream and wine can be made from rose hips. They are also fine to eat raw, though most folks find them much too tart. It is estimated that they contain 4 to 40 times the vitamin C in oranges. Not only are they great to cook with, rose hips have been used for centuries as a natural remedy to a number of ailments. From preventing and treating colds, treating stomach issues and intestinal diseases, weight loss, high blood pressure, and even topically on stretch marks. These immune boosters are truly a super-food. To dry rose hips, cut the berry in half and remove the seeds; this is not an easy task, so be patient. Lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and cover with a kitchen towel. Store in a cool, dry place, and in a couple weeks you’ll have enough for all your favorite recipes and remedies. Many other rose hip recipes call for straining (jellies) or leaving the berries whole (vinegars) so they don’t have to be seeded. The stalwart, native nature of the rosa rugosa means they are often used in gardens as ornamental shrubs, so avoid picking fruit from any plants that might have been treated with chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Just one more reason explore the lesser known areas of Nantucket and find them in the wild! Although the wild grape, the rose hip, and beach plum are prized finds well worth the work, we are not the only island inhabitants who enjoy them. It’s important to take only what you need during your harvesting; you want to leave enough behind for the animals who depend on them for sustenance. Of course, there are a few things to be careful of while on your food finding missions. Always avoid trespassing on private property. Instead, stick to public land or conservation areas that are open to the public. Take measures to protect yourself from ticks and other biting bugs, too. Though DEET is a tried and true repellant, there are a growing number of all natural sprays and lotions that are proving to be effective. And remember to watch where you walk. Poison ivy is prevalent on the island, and much like the plants you are searching for, it can often be hiding in plain sight. There are very few downsides to seeking your own late summer harvest of wild island plants. Enjoy the fresh air and exercise, enjoy the time spent with friends, and enjoy the simple pleasure of learning something new. Best of all and quite literally, enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Prepare pastry for a one-crust 9-inch pie. To make the pie: Slip skins from grapes and set them aside for a later step. Put the grape pulp in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Press the pulp through a sieve (or food mill) to remove the seeds. Mix pulp with sugar, skins, salt, flour, lemon juice, and butter. Pour into your pie crust and top with crumb topping. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes and then turn the heat down to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 30 minutes or until the pie filling starts to bubble.

BEACH PLUM COBBLER FILLING 4 pounds beach plums, halved and pitted 1 cup granulated sugar 2-3 tablespoons cornstarch 1/4 cup of port wine or malbec TOPPING 2 cups flour 5 tablespoons sugar, divided 1 tablespoon baking powder 1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon, divided 1/4 tsp. nutmeg 1⁄2 cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small cubes 3⁄4 cup plus 2 tablespoons whipping cream 1 large egg For filling: Preheat oven to 400F. Toss plums, sugar, wine, and cornstarch, in large bowl to coat. Transfer to a 13x9x2 inch glass baking dish. Bake until thick and bubbling at the edges, about 20 minutes. For topping: Whisk together flour, 3 tbsp. sugar, baking powder, salt, half the cinnamon, and all the nutmeg in large bowl. Blend butter in with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Whisk together 3⁄4 c. whipping cream and the egg. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until blended. Knead only until dough comes together. Mix together the last 2 tbsp of sugar and the other half of the cinnamon in small bowl. Remove beach plum mixtures from the oven, stir. Break off pieces of the dough and drop them over the hot plum mixture. Brush dough with remaining cream. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the dough. Bake cobbler until the topping is browned, about 30 minutes. Serve hot or warm with vanilla ice cream.

ROSEHIP JELLY 4 lbs rose hips 3 1/2 cups sugar 6 cups water 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice 1 package SureJell pectin In a large soup pot, cook the rose hips and the water over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook for 1 hour (or longer), until rose hips are soft. Mash the rose hips into a rough puree, then poor mixture into a strainer set over a bowl, let strain into the bowl for at least an hour and then press on the solids to extract more juice. Measure out 3 cups of juice. Rinse out the pot and pour in the juice with the sugar, lemon juice and pectin. Bring to a boil, dissolving all the pectin. Bring to a boil for 1 minute.

Leave only footprints... Nantucket has some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. Please respect Nantucket’s fragile environment and the beauty of our island.

In areas where dune reclaimation is taking place, please do not cross the rope or fence barriers protecting the dunes.

BEACH SAFETY •Learn to swim. If you can’t swim an overhead stroke for at least 15 minutes you should not be in the ocean. •Never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy, and swim near a lifeguard whenever possible. •Stay out of the “surf zone” where the waves break at the shoreline. Waves are at their greatest force here, and even a small wave can lift you up and throw you headfirst into the sand. •Never run from the beach into the water and dive headfirst into the waves. Sandbars that cannot be seen from the surface may be present and/or the water may be too shallow. •Don’t jump or dive into the water from a pier or rock jetty. From a pier or jetty, water appears much deeper than it really is. What looks like 10 or 20 feet of water may only be 2 to 3 feet deep. Diving in could be fatal. The same applies for jumping headfirst into the ocean or a wave from a surfboard – don’t do it! It’s not a risk worth taking. •If you are body surfing or boogie boarding, always keep your arms out in front of you to protect your head and neck. •A rip current will pull you away from the shore, but it will not pull you under. If you’re caught in a rip current, do not swim toward the shore! Instead, swim parallel to the shore, until you’re out of the rip current. Then, swim in to shore. •Never drink alcohol or use drugs at the beach. It clouds your ability to make wise decisions, and that could be fatal! •Take direction from lifeguards at all times.
