Eugene town’s in Lane Co.
By rosy Stumptown City;
Willamette River, short and wide
Licks its banks on either side…
Albacore tuna canning. Sustainably caught off the Oregon coast. This year I did a few jars of hickory-smoked, but the rest is lightly salted, fat, white, pure tuna, worth its weight in gold. The tuna is sterilized by a 100-minute bath in the pressure canner, but boy, does it remind you of its presence. As I walk down the street, the cats follow.
