Eating invasive species

Warren Wong likes the idea of eating water hyacinth:

“Read your recipe on cooking water hyacinth, have IDEA for you. My good wife YU YING … (I) suggest she prepares it with ginger, onions, garlic, cha siew (char sui)  or fish. Add chicken or slices of porterhouse steak — wow, you have this most fantastic dish. And wholesome, too.”

Wok the weed with olive oil, Wong suggests. Boaters could enjoy this dish and clear a path for their boats.










The hyacinth at Buckley Cove Marina is mind-boggling. There’s enough out there to feed all the hungry people in San Joaquin.

Meanwhile, the city’s spokeswoman sends along the section of the Muni Code that prohibits firing a gun within city limits.

So much for hunting invasive species for food in urban Stockton. Perish the though of firing a gun in Stockton city limits.
