Bread Rolls and Herbs!

North Street Primary Roimata Toroa year 7 & 8 students enjoyed making wholegrain bread rolls at Wholegrain Organics’ Bakery today, followed by a grain and flour presentation. After this we all drove down to our herb garden, and looked at the scent and flavour of many different herbs. After harvesting the herbs we needed for our vegetable soup (thyme, sage and parsley) we lent a hand in mulching the newly planted sage, thyme and chives plants.

North Street Primary students, and principal Jo Reiri tried their hand at making wholegrain bread rolls and grinding grain to flour at Wholegrain Organics’ Kitchen in Palmerston North.

Knife skills came to the fore as everyone was hands on dicing, peeling and slicing an array of vegetables for the organic soup which was thickened with creamed cashews, and flavoured with fresh herbs. The rainy weather seemed to enhance everyone’s appetite! Continue reading
