Summertime food preservation is a must for anyone interested in living local and supporting ourselves in a sustainable way. It's also really, really fun and easy!
This class is designed for the beginner home preserver as well as those who want to brush up on their skills or are unsure about the safety of certain methods. We will cover all of the basics from fairly simple tricks and techniques to the more intimidating and involved preserving processes.
Among the subjects we will cover in class are:
- Food Safety (your number one priority!)
- Causes of food spoilage and how to avoid them
- The right ingredients for preserving
- Tools of the trade
- Easy canning methods (jams, pickles and chutneys)
- Preserving in oil
- Pressure canning (it's not as scary as you think!)
- Preserving using simple fermentation (This will be a small section of this
workshop. If you are interested in this topic, please see our Home Preservation:
Cultured Foods class.)
All CLASSES REQUIRE ADVANCE REGISTRATION, EVEN FOR GIFT CERTIFICATE HOLDERS
The workshop will be held at Love Apple Farm, 2317 Vine Hill Road, Santa Cruz, CA
