Beloved, Boundless Bone Broth! How to make Chicken, Beef and Fish Broth...

Our great-grandmothers all made broths from bones. They simmered on the fire for hours to eventually become nourishing, nutrient dense soups. In this world full of processed food, many families no longer enjoy the benefits of traditional, slowly simmered bone broths. Bone broths have a long history of medicinal uses as well as health benefits. This hands-on class will sample bone broths, discuss sourcing options and learn the various simple methods for preparing these broths at home. Participants will leave with detailed handouts to use at home.

Succulent, Scrumptious Sourdough! Crackers, Cookies, Bread and More ...

Sourdough is the oldest and most original form of leavened bread. Nothing compares to the aroma of warm, freshly baked sourdough bread! Sourdough does not use modern yeasts, but begins with a culture or starter of natural yeast and lactobacilli, a process of fermentation which breakdown the gluten and predigests the starches, making it more digestible and absolutely delicious. This is a fun, hands-on class where you will learn all about maintaining a wild-yeast, naturally fermented starter. Together, we will make crackers, chocolate chip cookies and start a loaf of bread. There will be lots of sampling! You will go home with your own starter as well as handouts to ensure success in your own kitchen.
