How to Use Your CSA

  • The Farmer's Daughter 1211 Hixson Pike Chattanooga, TN, 37405 United States (map)

Overwhelmed by your CSA box?  Enjoying a bumper crop in your garden? We're here to help give you new ideas to use the summer bounty! During this demo class, we'll discuss storage, preservation methods, and cooking techniques of many summer vegetables, including summer squash and zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, and basil. You'll leave with a recipe pack with some of our favorite things to eat in the summertime and we'll talk about quick pickling, freezing, and other ways to not let those delicious vegetables go to waste.  Come hungry, there will be plenty to sample!
