Aunt Bee’s Kitchen is now an approved Class A Cottage Food Operation in Shasta County. Current product is Fiesta Corn, a spicy mix of dehydrated corn, onions, red and green bell peppers, chili powder, and other spices. Fiesta Corn can be eaten out of hand, rehydrated as a tasty side dish, or ground to enliven your favorite cornbread recipe. Under development are dehydrated meals for your next backpacking adventure, long haul road trip, or the Zombie Apocalypse. Look for the Aunt Bee’s Kitchen booth at the Saturday Redding Farmer’s Market this Fall.

She has a Food Service Technology certificate from Shasta College, was a Chef’s Apprentice at the Redding Red Lion Inn, and a Certified Cook with the American Culinary Federation. Benita most recently trained with the UCCE Master Food Preservers in food safety and current home food preservation methods. Her mission is to teach people how to preserve delicious, nutritious, and safe food, as well as to support the local farming community.
