Mom always said breakfast was the most important meal of the day. So bring your mom, or your kids, or think fondly of your own mom who’s far away, and come learn how to make your own yogurt and granola this Mother’s Day (May 10th) with Preserving Traditions! We’ll demonstrate the basics of making yogurt with no special equipment, and then we’ll concoct several varieties of granola together. You’ll also get to make a yogurt parfait with homemade cream-top yogurt, the granola we’ll make in class, and some local blueberries picked last summer.
We’ll provide rolled oats, oil, and sweeteners. Each person should bring a container to take home some granola, and one of the following:
- One cup of puffed rice, kashi, or other puffed grain cereal
- 3/4 c. bite-sized dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, cherries, diced apricots, diced apples, etc.)
- 1/2 c. shelled nuts or seeds (almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, etc.)
- 1/2 c. “extras” – coconut, wheat germ, ground flax seed
Note: Preserving Traditions is part of the Pittsfield Grange. Grange members attend all PT events free of charge. We request a donation of $5 from non-members to cover materials and use of the hall, or you can sign up for membership the day of the event.
