Everyone knows fruits and vegetables are nutritious, so we’re here to show you just how delicious they can be as well.
We’ll use locally grown Ontario produce to explore the many ways these fruits and veggies can be prepared and eaten. From cooking, to canning, to freezing – you’ll walk away with a new understanding of the versatility of Ontario crops.
In this project, you’ll learn:
- How to identify various local fruits and veggies and their seasonality
- Health benefits associated with various produce
- When to use fresh, canned and frozen versions
- New skills in preparing food using Ontario crops
