This was recommended by one of our leaders and looks like a great and fun way to get your little kiddos excited about eating more fruits and veggies (not that any of our members need that! 🙂

This time I won’t throw out my green onion roots – I’m going to try to grow more onions!

This is a great idea… and a great way to take advantage of “too much produce!”
Great way to store Ginger…. Put the whole root in a freezer bag & toss in freezer. When ready to use, just grate it..skin & all. Tastes fresh all the time!!
Last week at the Nunnery Branch a lady asked me how I keep my lettuce from wilting so fast, and I didn’t have a good answer at the time, but I asked a friend and now have a great solution that worked so well for me this week. (Hope she’s reading!)
When you get your lettuce home, tear each leaf off the stem, rinse it and let it soak for a minute in a bowl of water. Take it out of the bowl, shake it off a bit, and wrap it in a paper towel before putting it in an open bag to store it in the fridge.
I did this on Thursday, and my lettuce is still lookin’ great!
This suggestion came from one of our members this week…
Here is a great way to cook corn on the cob without the work of getting off the silks.
1. Use corn with all the husks still on it.
2. Microwave one ear for 4 minutes, or 2 for 8 minutes (seems long, may be OK with less time).
3. Take corn out with oven gloves on both hands.
4. Cut big end off through all the hus
5. Hold corn by top of husks and shake 2-3 times.
6. Corn will drop out of husks with no silk on it.
