Classroom A

Instructor: Julie James, Certified Herbalist, Master Gardener

Making herbal syrups is FUN. It is relatively easy to do if you like puttering around in the kitchen and certainly not hard even if you don't. Syrups make really fine delivery methods for people who don’t much care for the taste of certain herbs or won’t make a tea. And when you use yummy herbs, they're just fabulous. We will make an herbal syrup from start to finish in class, and we will taste a number of others. You will get to take home one of your choice, along with clear, detailed class notes for making more of them at home. Instructor will share with you her time-honored recipes for making syrups, along with some brand new favorites.
