HOME GROWN HERBS
AND SPICES: HOW TO USE THEM IN DAILY DIET
APRIL 16, 2011 10AM-2PM
While many of us have learned to grow some basic
herbs far too many of us don't know how to use them.
Join Lei Lani
Davis as she illustrates how to utilize the herbs we all grow in
our gardens during this hands-on workshop, held April 16,
2011 from 10am-2pm at B.B.Brown's Gardens, Clermont. The workshop will
begin with general information about herbs and what herbs grow
best in which temperatures, soil and PH. Like a progressive dinner,
we will move towards which part of the plant to use and when fresh
vs. dried is desired, along with ways to dry and freeze herbs.
How do I utilize herbs and spices in cooking? Try your hand at
making tea bags, dried herb mixture rubs, taste different vinegars
and discuss when you might use one vs. another. Herbs are also
being used more and more for health and medicinal purposes. Discussions
and references along with reminders of cautions will all be included.
