I had an opportunity to take an Herbal Pantry class
with Martha, of Lines From Linderhoff, yesterday.
The setting at Fire Lake Camp was idyllic!
Beautiful home and barn, with sweeping lawn down to the lake.
Tables set with jadeite dishes and milk glass vases filled with zinnias.
Julie was the sweetest hostess one could ever meet.
We gathered around the kitchen island and
Martha showed us how to make herbal vinegar, jam, honey
flour, sugar, salt, butter and pesto.
Each of those things was then incorporated into the lunch we were served.
It was all so fresh and beautifully presented.
Carrot and cranberry salad with lavender honey vinaigrette
Lettuce, basil and tomato salad with basil vinaigrette
Biscuits, with chive butter and peach rosemary jam
Blueberry basil jam cake with icing
Lavender sugar cookies
I enjoyed chatting with all the wonderful ladies at our table.
And what a delight to meet Martha in person!
Such a pleasant and happy way to spend part of my Saturday!
