Thanks for coming to CookShop for Families workshop 2 @ the ESPA meeting!

 Hello Everyone -
Thanks again to all who came to the ESPA meeting and got to sample some Peachy-Orange Salsa from the CookShop for Families curriculum. 
If you didn't make it, no worries - recipe is here attached!
Most attendees agreed that not only was this a bold and interesting option for breakfast - it would also pair well with grilled chicken, fish, shrimp, tofu or rice and beans.  And it could not be easier to make with your kids.  So if you are looking for a way to feature more fruit at your table, try making this fruit salsa with your kids sometime over the February break.
And after you've peeled all those oranges to make the salsa - don't throw away the peels!  Dry them out and make a delicious fruit-cinnamon tea that is a lovely warming end of Winter drink.
Warming fruit-cinnamon Tea mix (for 1 pot of tea - approx 4-6 cups)
Dried orange peel (about 5-8 small pieces)  you can dry orange peel by tearing the fresh peel into smaller pieces and leaving it overnight on a cookie sheet sitting on top of a warm radiator.
1Tbsp dried spearmint
1 Tbsp dried rosehips
3 cinnamon sticks (break them into smaller pieces if possible)
place all tea ingredients into a pot and cover with 4-6 cups of water.   Bring to a boil and then let steep for 10 minutes.  The longer it steeps, the stronger the flavor.  Strain into cups.  Drink warm.
See you at the next CookShop for Families on March 2nd - 8:30am - 9:30am - back to our regular location of 5th Street Lobby during Coffee Friday.
