A warm aroma filled Tyson Library Friday from a mix of typically popular winter ingredients simmer omg on the library’s stove. This stovetop potpourri was prepared as a demonstration for a group of adult patrons in one of the first programs of the season: DIY Simmer Pots.
Tali Crowe, a library employee, led a brief presentation over the basics of simmer pots. (What are they? What ingredients and supplies do you need to make them? When and where can you use them?) She also showed the attendees how quickly these aromatic concoctions can be thrown together to be enjoyed for a few hours or for an entire day.
The library provided ingredients for each attendee to make take-home packets for a few simmer pot recipes. The patrons packed them up themselves to get a feel for how they could combine a handful of commonplace fruits, herbs, and spices to achieve a wonderful-smelling home.
Tyson Library offers a variety of adult programming. To see what is on the coming up soon, go to our calendar. If you have an idea for an adult program, please contact Tali via email: email@example.com.
