ABOUT THE CLASS

Nourishing Condiments: Nourishing and healing remedies can be created right in your kitchen with seasonal herbs and foods. By letting the current harvest be our guide, participants of Nourishing Condiments will learn how to make nutritious condiments from common herbs and foods in the form of seasonings, vinegars, tinctures, honeys, infusions and salves.  Through hands-on activities, participants will learn about the fresh seasonal harvest used to make these condiments, and discover where these common herbs and foods grow.  This approach helps students to integrate all that they learn about these plants as food and medicine – as nourishing condiments.

    I would love to take this class because I would like to share what I learn with my 12 yo son. He recently has become very interested in wild edibles, making tincutes and salves, and the healing power of plants. Thanks for the opportunity to win such an amazing prize!
