Home Preserving: Tomatoes
Saturday, July 30, 2011 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Santa Cruz, CA
Who doesn't love a big bowl of pasta with homemade tomato sauce? Or perhaps spicy fresh tomato and red onion salsa on top of a quesadilla? How about golden tomato ketchup on your sweet potato fries? Here at Love Apple Farm, we love tomatoes just about any way you slice 'em, and we won't accept "winter" as a reason to not get our fix.
This workshop will focus on a variety of methods of preserving your hard-earned tomato crop, even if it does come from the farmer's market and not your garden. A versatile fruit, tomatoes can be stored (if prepared properly) for up to one year - just in time for next summers glut! Canning safely is always a priority, and we will go over the ways to ensure that your tomatoes will be eagerly awaiting you come January.
We will cover the various different methods of preserving these wonderful garden gems, preparing you to meet the season head-on with a full arsenal of tips and tricks to make the most of your tomatoes.
July is the premier month to give this workshop, allowing you to get prepared for the height of tomato season in the California Bay Area. If you don't have enough tomatoes in your garden to can, don't dismay, they will be in max supply at your local farmers markets.
