“What’s The Buzz About Bees and Honey?”: Honey is a substance produced by bees from the nectar of
flowers and plants. Commonly used as a sweetener in foods, honey is growing as an ingredient in medicine and
health care products. We will learn the importance of bees as pollinators in gardens and also review gardening
and beekeeping basics including resources for those interested in getting more involved in gardening and
beekeeping. This lesson will cover the use of honey in food, health care, and medicine and teach participants
how to select and care for honey. Favorite recipes from the National Honey Board and FoodLink will be
provided along with a tasting of one or more recipes.
"How Sweet It Is…Is Sugar Addictive?": It is sometimes said that sugar is “toxic” or “addictive” and it is often
blamed as the sole culprit in obesity and diabetes. Understanding what kind of sugar is in the food we are
eating and how much is important when determining just how sweet it is!
"Cooking Under Pressure": As Electric Programmable Pressure Cookers (EPPC) become more popular, it is
important to know how to use them correctly and to their full potential. These new kitchen appliances are

purchasing one – then this is the class for you!
