Now that we’re past New Year’s, people who still have their Christmas trees in their homes are starting to think about taking them down and getting rid of them.

Lots of cities across the Valley offer tree recycling services, but Julia Georgallis says you can re-use parts of your tree without leaving your house. In fact, she says, they can be a part of your next meal or happy hour.

Georgallis is a food writer, baker and author of the book, “How to Eat Your Christmas Tree.”

The Show spoke with her to learn about the inspiration behind the book and how a Christmas tree can be turned into a meal.
