Carrots for the Carrot Bars came from the PHS garden, as did the tomatoes. -Submitted photo Parents attending the recent Back-to-School Night at Plymouth High School were treated to some delicious – and healthy – snacks.

PHS culinary arts students have been making treats for the annual event for many years, but this year the focus was on using produce from the school’s garden as well as offering heart-healthy cookies.

“I attended a course at FVTC this past summer on heart-healthy baking, so we used three new recipes from there where half of the fat was substituted with all-natural ingredients,” said culinary arts instructor Gale Litt. “We also used herbs and carrots from the school garden.”

Students in Culinary Arts 3 created Parmesan Thyme Crackers, Lemon Rosemary Cookies and Carrot Bars. ProStart students added peanut butter cookies.

Litt hopes that students participating in the effort learned to be willing to try new products and how to work together for the common good. “They also learned how to make foods in large quantities – we used the commercial mixer for most of the products,” she said.

Students can expect the emphasis on healthy food to continue, Litt said. “We will continue to pursue ways to enhance the products we make in Culinary Arts 3 to improve their nutritional value as well as appeal for the student audience.”
