April 25, 2010 – Locavoring at Church Conference

This weekend we attended our church’s regional conference in Davenport.  The conference put an emphasis on involving all ages, so we proposed a session from the kitchen on “cooking local” thinking it would be a nice change from conference center meeting rooms.

Here Martin is helping us to prepare – we made biscuits form scratch using local flours, and in the background you can see that we also set up to make jam – both raspberry and strawberry with frozen berries from the farm.  About 20 people signed up and all seemed to enjoy sampling the jam on the hot biscuits and bringing a jar or two of jam home as well.
