Saturday, July 16, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Capturing the Herbal Harvest


Capture the herbal harvest while gardens and farm stands are brimming with fresh herbs. Even though no one wants to think about winter now, you will be thrilled when your pantry and freezer are stocked for winter cooking and holiday gift giving!

Imagine lining your cupboard shelves with jewel toned bottles of herb vinegars, golden brown herb mustards and sparkling jars of herbal jellies. Picture containers of herb butters, bags of rosemary walnuts and bottles of herb pesto filling a corner of your freezer.

Not enough time? Too much work? Not true. Mrs. Thrift never does anything that takes too much time! Learn which herbs are best to dry, and which to freeze. Mustard, butters, vinegars, jellies, salts and sauces can all be quickly made, then stored for year round enjoyment. Bring your taste buds. We will end with a little taste of everything! Recipe sheets included. The program will take place Saturday, July 16, from 10 – 12 at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens and Arboretum, 101 Ferry Road, Bristol, Rhode Island, and costs $18 for Blithewold members and $25 for non-members.
