January in San Diego is a great month for harvesting winter crops planted early in the fall. The children were thrilled to find that the cilantro was ready to harvest! They pulled and washed the cilantro to use in a delicious salsa that they made from a family recipe that one of the children shared with the group. They were reminded how cilantro originated in South America and is used all over the world now. Everyone enjoyed the salsa with corn chips…and many children had seconds, thirds, fourths, fifths…some while wearing Mexican sombreros!
