Picklin’ Okra

August 22 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Our focus will be learning to pickle okra.  Gloria will teach her method and you’ll prep two jars of pickled okra.  We’ll get them cooked and ready to go home while you hang out with Chris Smith, author of the brand new book The Whole Okra.

Chris, young and energetic, grows over 70 varieties of okra.  And he might bring okra infused vodka and we’ll all sample.  He’ll also have fresh okra to take home so you can make more to share with friends and family.

We’ll focus on using okra for food and fun — it’ll be hot and we’ll mostly be inside.  But we’ll also do a lily farm tour — and if you want, pick okra from the farm.  Bring long sleeves for this part!

We have a full afternoon planned for you with light snacks recipes and all things okra.  Then a very personalized tour of the farm including the new classroom built into our 1900’s barn.
