HOME GROWN HERBS
AND SPICES: HOW TO USE THEM IN DAILY DIET
OCTOBER 8, 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 October
8, 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.
