Huge Thanks to the Boy Scouts for Building Epiphany’s New Herb Garden!
February 5, 2015
On behalf of Epiphany’s women and children, many thanks to Nathaniel Corley and his San Francisco Boy Scout Troop 14 for their hard work and thoughtful planning to handcraft a gorgeous redwood planter box packed with fresh oregano, thyme, chocolate mint, rosemary, and more. Epiphany’s women are already enjoying plucking handfuls of fresh greens to flavor their savory dishes cooked up in their Hands-On Healthy Cooking Classes.
Epiphany’s cooking teacher, Lynne Burell offers her go-to recipe featuring her favorite little leaves.
Fried Sage Leaves
Sprinkle these on squash or bean soups. Pinch off leaves from one bunch fresh sage. Heat ¼ cup olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Fry 6-8 sage leaves at a time until crisp, 2-3 seconds. Transfer with a fork to paper towels and sprinkle generously with coarse salt. Makes about 30 fried leaves.
Help us continue empowering our city’s at-risk women with the tools to build healthier futures for themselves and their children by donating to Epiphany today.
