Savor the Southwestern bounty of beans during Apple Days at the historic Santa Ysabel Store on Saturday, October 3, when you can learn about growing and cooking heirloom beans from two expert organic growers. At 1:00 PM, meet Mike and Chris Reeske, owners of Rio Del Rey Farms, a small, sustainable farm on the San Luis Rey River in northern San Diego County.
This free gathering is the restored store's first cooking event in an occasional series with local food purveyors sponsored by Save Our Heritage Organisation. SOHO is San Diego County's largest, most effective preservation advocacy group, and owner of the Santa Ysabel General Store.
Watch the Reeskes' demonstration and hear the fascinating, multicultural history of ancient beans in the Southwest in an authentic backcountry setting dating to 1884. They will also describe their adventures collecting heirloom seed samples and organic farming practices.
One recipe guests will sample is an Apple Days special of white bean salad with apples and nuts, and containing Rio Del Rey Farms organically grown beans. Buy two pounds of beans and receive a free recipe booklet!
Sweet cider from Julian's own Apple Lane Orchard will be available and sold in the Santa Ysabel Store for this one day only. As local cider lovers know, this specialty beverage is hand pressed in small batches.
