ALCMC – Spring rolls!

Hello Garden Friends.

Last Tuesday at ALMC we made spring rolls! Served with a homemade peanut sauce the snacks were a huge hit! I brought my camping stove and steamed the beets for the maximum yummy factor. I always love balancing some of the garden work with cooking lessons. I mean, why grow food if you don’t know how to cook with it?

Anyways, here a few pictures of the process.. Enjoy!

Until next week,
