This Week's Taste Test
This week we welcomed this summery weather with a refreshing and delicious taste test...lemonade! But it wasn't just plain, old lemonade...it was lemonade infused with an herb. When asked to name some herbs that we might have used to liven up the lemonade students responded with lots of ideas. Oregano, rosemary, parsley, mint, thyme, sage, lemongrass, basil, and lavender were all suggested. But when they took their first sip their taste buds picked up on the subtle flavor...MINT! It was a huge hit (thumbs, fingers and toes up!) and students were begging for more.
You can find the recipe on this page in case you'd like to try it out at home! http://www.vermontharvestofthemonth.org/june--herbs.html
