Blueberry juice feels rather decadent when you consider how many of the tiny fruits are required to produce just a glass or two of juice. Luckily, blueberry pulp is very easy to use. It becomes almost invisible when combined with chocolate or cocoa powder in baked goods, where it lends moisture and can even replace some of the oil or butter in your recipe.

BLUEBERRY PAPAYA CUCUMBER JUICE

Juice Ingredients

1¼ cup blueberries
1 medium papaya, peeled, and trimmed, seeds removed
1 large cucumber, peeled and seededjuice of 1 to 2 sweet limes or 1 Valencia orange

Juice Instructions

1. Process blueberries and cucumber in your juicer and reserve the pulp in one bag.
2. Juice papaya and reserve its pulp separately.
3. Add the sweet lime or orange juice to the mixture, stir, and enjoy.
Serves 3.

BLUEBERRY CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH DARK CHOCOLATE GANACHE AND TOASTED COCONUT

The above juice left me with about 4 ounces (½ cup) of cucumber-blueberry pulp and ¾ cup of papaya pulp. Using slightly more or less pulp in your recipe probably will not affect your finished product all that much.

Here I adapted my standard vegan chocolate cake recipe, with the pulp serving as a substitute for a large portion of the oil. As I mentioned above, the pulp in the batter is virtually undetectable and the cake came out incredibly moist and tender.

Cake Ingredients

1½ cups whole wheat pastry flour
1½ cups all purpose flour
⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting
(I add a tablespoon or two of black onyx cocoa powder to my regular cocoa when I make chocolate cake — it gives a slightly richer product. Onyx cocoa powder can be ordered from the Savory Spice Shop.)
1½ cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
½ cup blueberry-cucumber pulp
½ cup vegetable oil
2 cups brewed black tea*, chilled
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
*Either coffee or tea works very well in this recipe — for best results be sure to use a strong brew.

Cake Instructions

1. Grease two 9-inch round cake pans and dust with cocoa powder. Line bottoms of the pans with parchment paper and grease the parchment as well.
2. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C) with a rack in the middle.
3. Sift flours, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
4. In a separate bowl, combine the blueberry-cucumber pulp, vegetable oil, chilled tea, and vanilla.
5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and combine with a rubber spatula. Add the vinegar and mix in with as few strokes as possible (it’s okay if there are streaks in the batter).
6. Pour batter into the prepared pans and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, testing doneness with a wooden toothpick.
7. Let cakes cool in their pans for 5 to 10 minutes before running a knife around the edge of each pan and unmolding to cool completely.

While cakes are cooling, put the papaya pulp and a tablespoon or two or orange juice into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add a tablespoon of sugar and stir as the mixture simmers gently for about 5 minutes. Cook until you have a thick, spreadable paste. Cool.

Filling Instructions

When the cake has cooled you may want to even out the surface of your first layer by slicing off the dome to create a flat, even round. Spread the papaya filling over the bottom cake layer and top with second cake.

Ganache Ingredients

8 ounces chopped dark chocolate, or chocolate chips (about 60% cocoa)
⅔ cup soy milk
4 tablespoons maple syrup
topping: ½ cup toasted* unsweetened shredded coconut
(*spread coconut onto a sheet pan and toast at 325°F (163°C) in a toaster oven for about 10 minutes)

Ganache Instructions

1. Heat the soy milk in a small saucepan until it begins to boil. Remove from heat and immediately add the chocolate.
2. Stir until all the chocolate has melted, then stir in maple syrup until the mixture is completely smooth.
3. Let cool slightly before pouring over the cake. Top your cake with the toasted coconut, and chill in fridge to set the ganache.

This cake keeps beautifully for 3 to 4 days at room temperature when wrapped in plastic or stored inside a cake dome.

Everything was not prosaic in river life in the old days.All of us have heard of the great races on the MississippiRiver between magnificent steamers, and of the excitementon deck as first one and then the other gained a slightadvantage. Stories, more or less reliable, have been toldao-ain and again of the immense sums of money made andlost by speculators who backed their own boats against allcomers. Tricks and jokes also prevailed and continue upto the present time. The passenger on a Tennessee Riverboat is almost sure to be told how a very popular firstmate escaped arrest by disguising himself as a cook. Thestory is amusing enough to bear repetition, and bereft ofcorroborative detail, evidently designed to lend artisticverisimilitude to the narrative, it is as follows: The boat was detained at a landing at a small Kentuckytown where the laws against gambling were supposed to bevery strict. Some of the officers of the boat were

In the offi-cial report of the Lands departmentthere are some twenty pages of notesupon the wingless birds of New Zea-land, contributed by Richard Henry,the caretaker of Resolution Island,one of the sanctuaries upon whichthese interesting birds are being pro-tected. Resolution Island, in DuskySound, West Coast, discovered byCaptain Cook, is named after one ofthe ships in which Cook made hisfirst voyage.
