Preserve the Season

Chef Sandra has been gardening and canning since she wore her hair in pigtails! Her mother and father instilled the need to always have fresh food from day one. These skills have been passed down in each generation and Chef Sandra is continuing that tradition.

Using fresh herbs from her own garden allows you to infuse lots of flavor into your dishes easily and its super healthy!
