Learn to make delicious pickles! These lacto-fermented pickled cucumbers and green beans make tasty snacks or finger food. My family loves them! They are a nutritious snack packed with probiotics for health and enzymes that enhance digestion. And they are easy to make! Lacto-fermented, or cultured, vegetables and condiments are a great way to get plenty of beneficial “good” bacteria into your digestive system.

We had a wonderful morning at the Ranch last Saturday, learning to make delicious salads.
Chef Nancy introduced us to a variety of tasty salads for various occasions. For example, a tabouli salad with feta cheese would be perfect for a summer luncheon entrée. A side salad of marinated black-eyed peas and sun-dried tomatoes would go with any entree. We also learned the secrets to creating family pleasing homemade salad dressings.
Nancy also shared this important information about purchasing produce and choosing oils.
Then came a tour of the beautiful garden at the Ranch.
Last, we had a yummy lunch of salads, bread, and dessert.

If you had walked past the ranch kitchen on Saturday morning, you would have heard lots of chopping, talking, and laughing. The Hearty Soup Class was happening. Aromas were intense and inviting. This fun class was followed by a tour of the garden and a lovely lunch of four different soups, salad, corn bread and sourdough bread. Hope you can join us next time!
Here are the delicious recipes from this class:
Cream of Broccoli Split Pea ala Crockpot Winter Squash Soup
Fiesta Chicken Soup Honey Baked Apples
Italian Balsamic Salad Dressing and Za’atar & Tahini Salad Dressing
Cooking with young gardeners is so much fun! These recipes are meant to appeal to young adventurous taste buds, as well as more mature tongues. They also offer many opportunities for young hands to help. We hope your family enjoys these dishes as much as we do.
