Fourth Friday Food Day Class Ozark Folk Center January 22, 2010

It has long been an Ozark tradition to make do with what you have on hand. Those are good lessons for today’s world too.  But that doesn’t have to mean eating anything less than healthy, hearty, delicious meals.

Soups are a traditional winter food that are easy to make and that fit easily into modern life. There’s nothing quite like the comfort of a steaming bowl of soup on a frosty winter night. However, soup from a can leave a lot to be desired. You can learn that it’s really not hard to make delicious soup from scratch.  Join Jeanette Larson at the Ozark Folk Center on January 22 to learn how.
