It’s strawberry season and we’ve been enjoying the red bounty that’s only worth eating this time of the year if you ask me.
Strawberries in Brasstown aren’t exactly ripe yet, at least Granny’s aren’t. But our local produce stand, Peachtree Produce, trucks them in from farther south. The strawberries are so good this year! But I think I say that every year.
If you’ve got some fresh strawberries coming your way here’s a few recipes for you to try out…if you don’t gobble them up all at once 🙂

MOUNTAIN FLAVORS – TRADITIONAL APPALACHIAN COOKING
Location: John C. Campbell Folk School – Brasstown, NC
Date: Sunday, June 23 – Saturday, June 29, 2019
Instructors: Carolyn Anderson, Tipper Pressley
Experience the traditional Appalachian method of cooking, putting up, and preserving the bounty from nature’s garden. Receive hands-on training to make and process a variety of jellies, jams, and pickles for winter eating. You’ll also learn the importance of dessert in Appalachian culture and discover how to easily make the fanciest of traditional cakes. Completing this week of cultural foods, a day of bread making will produce biscuits and cornbread. All levels welcome.
Along with all that goodness Carolyn and I have planned a couple of field trips to allow students to see how local folks produce food for their families. The Folk School offers scholarships you can go here to find out more about them. For the rest of the class details go here.
