Saturday, June 15th 10:00am Pickling and Canning
The class will be taught by Lee Greene, owner of The Scrumptious Pantry and will discuss what to look for in produce, the basic steps in the canning/pickling process, how to ensure food safety, plus some of Lee’s favorite heirloom recipes. This intro is not a hands-on canning class, but a lecture with a step-by-step demonstration. We will be touching on all the basics of canning, but we will be focusing a little more about pickling and demo that process, because the acidified foods are the more difficult ones – and the ones that post the highest risk if you do not do it right.- choosing equipment (jars, hot water bath vs. pressure canner)
– to processes of jams, sauces, pickles
– how to choose your produce
– nutritional benefits of canned product – and what do you do with it once you have it stored in your pantry
– ingredient choices (which vinegars when your pickling for example – there will be snack and recipes, too!)
– good resources (books, online) Reservations required – $20.00
