A Little Help From Barry Farm Foods

  Recipe How-To's

Missed out on the old fashioned Home-Ec classes and just want to know how to prepare a meal using basic foods without having to pour it out of a box?  We wouldn't have given this too much thought if we hadn't run into people at our Farmer's Market that said they didn't know how to make bean soup or cook from scratch (without a package mix).

We have had so many inquiries for basic cooking instructions that we have decided to include a few pages of "HOW-TOS".  Just scroll down the list below and click on the "HOW-TO" you need.  It will take you to a page with basic instructions.  Just print the page and enjoy.
