Join master preserver Camilla Wynne of Preservation Society spread holiday cheer with homemade edible gifts! In this workshop we cover the basics of water bath canning, from selecting your produce to proper sterilization. We then move to the kitchen and prepare one marmalade recipe (such as a Three Citrus-Ginger marmalade) and one chutney (like a Cranberry-Tamarind chutney), both of which make amazing stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, or a pantry arsenal perfect for complementing cheese plates or cozy morning breakfasts. You will leave the class ready to tackle any project and able to safety modify recipes to your taste.
In this fun, hands-on workshop, participants will learn how to:
- safely prepare lower sugar, no pectin marmalade
- safely prepare delicious chutney
- modify ingredients in any recipe to satisfy your creative urges
- eliminate steps from the traditional canning process
- choose the best produce for canning
This class will run from 10am – 1pm and therefore will serve a light lunch featuring some of the items you will be learning to make.
