Join Winneshiek County Extension and Outreach at 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 20, to learn about cooking with fresh herbs. Cooking with fresh herbs is a great way to add flavor to food without using lots of salt, sugar and fat. Explore 10 common herbs to grow in your garden, in a pot in a kitchen or on a patio.
Classes will include information on how and when to add herbs in cooking, how to identify 10 different fresh herbs and how to substitute fresh herbs for dried in recipes.
Attendees will have a chance to sample a recipe with fresh herbs and learn ways to preserve the herbs they’ve grown.
