As Valentine's Day approaches, the Garfield Park Conservatory is teaching its visitors about the origins of candy.The key ingredients for many of our favorite sweet treats begin with plants.

So, the conservatory held its second annual Sweet Saturdays over the weekend, allowing visitors to sample bananas, vanilla beans and cinnamon bark.

For anyone who missed it, Sweet Saturdays continues next weekend.
