Want to preserve some of the wonderful Ontario harvest so that you can enjoy it for the rest of the year? In this hands-on workshop, you’ll dive right into the process of larger-batch pickling. This class is more about producing jars to take home, rather than a more in-depth lesson on the details of canning and preserving.
After a quick demonstration, participants will break into teams and work together – under the guidance of expert pickler Christine Manning of Manning Canning – to pickle bushels of Ontario spring asparagus using a variety of recipes. You’ll see firsthand how teamwork can increase your bounty.
You’ll learn the basics of preserving and canning while making delicious pickles, and leave with recipes and a minimum of 4-6 jars of Pickled Asparagus that you can store in your pantry or give as gifts throughout the year.
Christine Manning is the founder of Manning Canning, a local food company that makes a selection of unique jams, jellies, preserves, pickles and other delectable spreads from locally sourced produce. Christine also runs Manning Canning Kitchens, that offers rentable commercial production kitchens for local food entrepreneurs.
