“Mesquite Pod Harvest & Processing”
with Peggy Sue Sorensen
Native Mesquite trees produce thousands of edible bean pods that fall to the ground every year. Most people rake them up and throw them away without realizing that they’re not only edible, but they’re delicious and nutritious too.
:Peggy Sue Sorensen will give a presentation on:
- How to identify native mesquite trees
- When to harvest the pods
- How to dry and store the pods
- How to grind the pods into flour
- How to use the flour in everyday recipes
You will also learn how to avoid Aflatoxin and Bruchid beetles.
Once you taste Mesquite, you will understand why Peggy Sue calls it the “Sugarcane of the Desert.”
