Event description

Description

Winter is a great time to try new preserves thanks to the abundance and variety of citrus fruit at the market--and citrus has more uses than a jar of marmelade. In this class, we'll make and can citrus curd, a delicious, creamy treat for tarts, cookies, or simply eating with a spoon!

In addition to water-bath canning, we’ll also talk about using salt to make preserved lemons, a pantry staple in Middle Eastern cuisine.

This class is perfect for canning novices and veterans alike. Instructor Emily Paster will discuss the basics of water-bath canning, including safety and storage, plus ways to customize your preserves. You’ll leave with the knowledge and confidence to try canning at home.

Attendees will make and take home their own jars of citrus curd and salt-preserved lemons.
