Herbal Oils, Butters & Vinegar Workshop

Charlene Wildes, naturalist and herbalist, will teach how to make those expensive oils and butters in your own kitchen. Using fresh herbs you will be able to make flavored oils that rival the best store bought. A plus to making your own is you can flavor them to your liking so you get only the flavors you enjoy. These are easy to create and make great gifts. We’ll taste different flavored oils, vinegars and try some herbed and fruit butters on biscuits. You can then create your own sample to take home.
Recipes included!
