Sheila Higgins/Kris JohnsonKris Johnson's greenhouse provided some fun fall surprises at this week's LIVE Great Taste show.  Kris grew and harvested mixed greens and strawberries (that's correct strawberries the first week of October).  Sheila Higgins, baker/cook extraordinaire, added the creative element, turning out sorrel soup, a tangy dressing for the greens, and some showstopping quinoa mini cupcakes.  

Tune in to hear Kris explain how the greenhouse he operates has two major systems allowing it to perform in the Iowa winter.  Also, Sheila HigginsKris Johnson/GreenhouseSheila shares her recipe for a unique taste that brightens up salad greens, and we learn a bit about what motivates both Sheila and Kris to educate themselves and consumers with the goal of creating a healthier population and planet.
