West Seattle and Catharine Blaine!

 January 30th, 2013!

Sunchoke, out of the ground!!
Sunchokes, in the ground
We welcomed West Seattle and Catharine Blaine Elementary Schools this week to IslandWood, and had some of their fantastic students join us for STS. We made kale biscuits with leek on top, kale chips, fresh raw snacks, and ginger/lemongrass/lemon balm tea...YUM.  First, we harvested our ingredients from the garden which included:


  • Leeks
  • Lacinato or Dinosaur Kale
  • Sunchokes (for tasting)
  • Parsnips (for tasting)
  • Turnips (for tasting)
  • Celery (for tasting)
  • Carrot (for tasting)
  • Lemongrass (tea)
  • Rosemary and Parsley (herbs)

Shake it up!
 In the kitchen, we prepped all the ingredients to make our biscuits, and kale chips (see our STS recipe link!). Students helped us out in many ways. For one, we needed to shake the whipping cream vigorously in a jar to make our buttermilk, and butter for our biscuits.

OMG, Giant Parsnip!

 Time to set up plates and enjoy the fruits of our 
labor! Thank you Chef Chris, Gardener Jen, West Seattle and Catharine Blaine Elementary Students.
