Join master preserver Camilla Wynne of Preservation Society for this fun, hands-on workshop, where you’ll learn how to bring a little sunshine into your life by transforming citrus fruits into gorgeous, shelf-stable preserves.
This class covers all the basics of water bath canning, from selecting your produce to proper sterilization to basic microbiology. You will also get to sample some different citrus preserves. Then you’ll dive into making a delicious marmalade and grapefruit supremes in customizable light syrup, as well as leaving with peels to candy at home.
Participants will leave with a jar of each preserve. You’ll also leave ready to tackle any canning project and able to safely modify recipes to suit your taste. Camilla’s preserving cookbook, Preservation Society Home Preserves, will be available for sale.
In this fun, hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to:
– safely prepare pectin-free, lower sugar whole fruit marmalade
– safely prepare canned fruits in syrup (or any other liquid!)
– modify ingredients in any recipe to satisfy your creative urges
– eliminate steps from the traditional canning process
