Thanks for a fun evening at The Learning Kitchen!

I had a really great time hanging out with some of our Farm Share members on Monday evening. Lyn Deardorff of Preserving Now gave a great class all about canning. Each of us left with new knowledge of canning to help us preserve our Farm Share veggies to enjoy year round! A big shout out to Lyn for teaching us one of the “lost arts”.

Check out the photos below to see how it all went down!

Storage Tip: Cilantro

This storage tip can be applied to most leafy fresh herbs. If you you’re not going to use all of your cilantro right away, this is the best way to keep it fresh for a couple of weeks!

Place the cilantro in a small jar with enough water to cover the ends. Cover the jar with a plastic bag (any sandwich bag works well) and place in your refrigerator. Grab stems as you need them.

Another great way to always have cilantro on hand is to chop it and freeze it in an ice tray with either water or oil. This way you have fresh cilantro anytime of year!

Recipe by Hugh Acheson

I get asked often if you can cook and eat the greens of hakurei turnips. The answer is always yes! Hugh Acheson, chef/owner of several Georgia restaurants including Empire State South and The National has a delicious and easy recipe that calls for both roots and greens of your turnips.

Who knows, maybe this dish will end up on your Thanksgiving table this year!
