Garden to Table: Crops coming full circle

Individuals at CSS continue to nourish the six garden plots at Wooten Mill Garden Park in Gaithersburg. While many crops are coming to a close for the season, the tomatoes are abundant! Dozens of crates of a variety of tomatoes are brought back to the CSS kitchen. Chef Adam incorporates the fruit, as well as other crops from the garden,  into the weekly Healthy Living cooking classes, using recipes such as fresh tomato and basil soup. The remaining tomatoes are cooked in bulk recipes, such as marina sauce or ketchup, and canned. The resulting product is divided among CSS residential houses for the individuals to use at home while preparing healthy meals.
