How to Stop Eating Like Crap

Local, seasonal, and sustainable foods are great for the diet. But too often the hefty price tags aren't kind to the wallet. One solution: Grow and preserve your own healthful foods. You can learn how tonight at Cleveland's idyllic Blue Pike Farm. Seasoned author and cooking instructor Judi Strauss will be there from 6 to 8:30 p.m. with a class devoted to cooking and preserving tomatoes. Author of The Charmed Garden and other cookbooks, Strauss cites all kinds of reasons to go DIY with your ingredients. "It's nice to support people locally, and you know what's going into your food," says Strauss. And when times are tough, it's economical. "You can get five or six dollars per square foot out of a garden." Strauss will be teaching techniques for canning, drying, and freezing fresh tomatoes; samples and recipes will be provided. Attendance is $30; call Strauss at 216-383-9511 to reserve your space. — Munnell 900 East 72nd St., bluepikefarm.com Wednesday | 17
