The Incredible Edible Eanes Environment

One of the hottest culinary trends in Central Texas this summer is for craft brewers to use native plants like ashe juniper (cedar) and prickly pear cactus in their specialty beers. This trend just proves that history repeats itself! Join the Eanes History Group by Zoom to discover the “Incredible Edible Eanes Environment” based on a brochure Linda Vance and Dorothy Depwe researched for the Eanes History Center about 30 years ago. Recipes and resources will be provided for you to discover what edible delights might be brewing in your backyard!
