Capture the Season's Bounty in your Pantry!
It can be small batch or a garden’s worth. It’s old fashioned – with modern science!
Our Immersion Workshop covers all the basics in a four-hour complete, hands-on workshop, using the most popular and easiest method: water-bath canning. We emphasize safety guidelines along with tips for avoiding added sugars, salts, and other dietary concerns - along with NO preservatives, artificial coloring or other additives!
We’ll do three of the most popular kinds of canning: A Pickle, A Tomato, and A Fruit. You’ll receive a complete notebook of instruction and recipes (which we use in the class) along with a jar of each product to take home - 3 jars in all. We'll talk about using equipment you already have on hand, how to use your jarred food in various recipes such as entrees, lunches, appetizers, kids' meals.
You'll leave with the knowledge and confidence to do canning on your own – ready to stock your pantry for year-round seasonal goodness! All supplies, food and jars, plus instructions and recipes provided. $75.00 per person
