8.17.2020 Cooking what you grow!

Hello, friends! 

It’s time for our second-to-last-class of the season. It’s a great time to focus on good eats! This will be special “how to” class with Nancy Gottron of Up Scale Eats. She will be sharing some great recipes for can-it-yourself-pie filling, GF oat bars, blueberry pie filling to freeze, pumpkin blueberry bread, etc. She will also tout the nutritional benefits of blueberries and show how to best freeze a supply! 

Are you interested in home grown food but did not have as much yield in your own garden to feed your whole house? My Neighborhood has got an opportunity to become a part of their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). For $200.00 you can get 10 weeks of produce that was grown in the community garden in Ashtabula! This is a steal and there are only 5 spots left. This weekend is the first box so you have not yet missed anything. This might also make a GREAT gift for someone who struggles with time or money for buying local food.

Maybe listen to the podcast below before making your decision….it’s a good reminder to recommit to buying local food!
