Vegetarian Jerky from Bayside, California

Now available with Jerky in Specialty Foods:
Vegetarian Jerky direct from the producer in Bayside, California

This unique product is a perfect imitation of real beef jerky, but without the beef.

Vegetarian "Beef-Less" Jerky was originated by Mark Turman of Californiavin 1995. Working at home, he combined special ingredients with a soybean base to come up with the veggie jerky that he began marketing.

He sold the recipe and his jerky business in 1998 to his friend, Eleanor White, who continues to provide a jerky that's preservative free, fat-free and high in protein for vegetarians and omnivores alike.

The vegetarian jerky is available in Hickory Pepper, Cowgirl, Hot Chili Pepper and Teriyaki flavors as well as in combination and sample packs of multiple flavors.

Here's How To... Grow Your Own Starts

Starting your own plants from seed can give you a wider choice of cultivars than what you can often find as transplants at the local garden center. It also ensures that you will have healthy plants at the right time to set out.

If you want the very latest types of plants or want to try growing heirloom varieties, you usually have to get the seed from mail-order sources.

Once you have the seeds in hand, however, you have to get them to germinate and grow in order to have useable transplants for the garden.  And this is where many gardeners face frustration.  Sometimes the seed fails to germinate or, once germinated, it doesn't grow as it should, resulting in poor quality transplants.

Growing plants from seed is not complicated if you know a few basic seed germination tips.
