Pick Cook Keep

The Pick, Cook, Keep video series is produced by Georgia Public Broadcasting through the support of the Georgia Department of Agriculture. Pick, Cook, Keep is an extension of the “Georgia Grown” legacy series, vignettes promoting the breadth of Georgia’s locally grown produce. Georgia Grown highlights where each crop is grown, introduces audiences to individuals who take personal responsibility/pride for this produce, and teaches how to recognize Georgia Grown in markets and restaurants. As a continuation of this effort, Pick, Cook, Keep shows Georgians about the life cycle of Georgia Grown products from farm, to table, to preservation. Each vignette showcases a healthy, tasty, and easy-to-prepare native crop such as pecans, greens, wines, honey, blueberries, onions, melons, peaches, tomatoes, peppers, and apples.
