CHS Garden Tool Basics Workshop
The tools all gardeners should own and how to care for them
There was standing-room-only at the CHS Education Committee Garden Tool Workshop that was led by Kevin Wilcox, CHS member and experienced nurseryman. View the slideshow to see what went on!
It should also be mentioned that a newer-member on the Education Committee, Jody Morgan, has been creating quite a buzz with her melt-in-your-mouth Rosemary Cookies; lovingly baked for refreshments at the last two workshops. Not only is Jody exceptional in the kitchen but she also shares recipes. Enjoy!
Rosemary Cookie Recipe from Jody Morgan
1 cup softened butter
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup 10X sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 cups flour
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary finely chopped or 2 teaspoons dried (Note: I actually use 3 generous tablespoons of fresh rosemary)
Combine all ingredients except rosemary in mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Add rosemary and mix gently into batter. Refrigerate the dough for an hour or more so not so sticky. Form into small balls (about 1 teaspoon sized), place on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Cookies will spread a bit in baking.
Bake at 375º. Check after 6 minutes, turn pan and bake another 2-4 minutes until cookies are pale golden. Baking time varies with your oven. Makes 6-8 dozen cookies. Remove from cookie sheet immediately and cool on rack.
