     Hope you all can make this class.  Since cabbage is coming on I’ve decided to do a sauerkraut class.  The very best kraut is made with cabbage that is freshly picked.  Floyd and Steve from Horse Creek Farm (used to be Irene’s home by the way!) will be picking us cabbage Thursday morning and bringing it to the Grub Club by noon…so should be good!  Don’t know about the Grub Club?  Ask me at the class…It’s a very good way to vote with your spending money, support local small farmers, and put fresh organic produce on your table each week!
I’ll bring my polish kraut crock, the kind with the moat in it for the best kind of fermentation where it lets the gasses escape without letting air in, support perfect lacto-fermentation. 
Suggested donation: $5-10 sliding scale
Kraut in one month for students $10/quart
Enjoy the Summer Solstice beginning of this summer!
Here’s a delicious “Coconut Snowball Cookie” recipe for a healthy alternative to sugary treats that you and the kids in your life will love!!
Coconut Snowball Cookies
1 1/2 cup shredded coconut – blend in food processor to a fine powder
2 Tlbsp. coconut oil
1/8 tsp. natural/real salt finely ground
1/2 tsp Vanilla 
1/4 cup honey
Mix thoroughly and roll into little balls.  Place parchment paper on cookie sheet and keep in the fridge till hardened.  I like them with a crispy almonds or pecans poked onto the top!  Store in the fridge.     To make crispy nuts, soak nuts for 12-24 hrs. in a brine, drain and bake on 125 F or however low your oven goes for 24 hrs, stirring occasionally.
