The Great Salsa Challenge

Day 334…

In preparation for the community Taste-A-Thon next month at the garden, each group of teenagers created their own salsa recipe.

They decided what ingredients they wanted to put in their salsa, and how much.

There was a choice of  15 different items–such things as vinegar, lime juice, cilantro, corn, sugar and jalapenos.

Ingredients were carefully measured into the blender…

to mix them together.  Here Pamm is carefully securing the top.

After each blending, results were tested.  Dante obviously didn’t like this outcome.  His group would add more sugar.

Everyone enthusiastically participated.  This is Shalon, the community center manager.

I’m a great believer in “hands on activities.”
