Nothing beats homemade pie, but not all fruits are available at peak flavour all year round. Solution? Turn your favourite fruits into delicious pie filling, and then jar it for quick and easy pies any time of the year!
In this fun, hands-on workshop, Christine Manning of Manning Canning will walk you through turning fresh-picked Ontario cherries and apples into delicious pie fillings using just lemon juice, castor sugar, and Clearjel powder. (Note: cornstarch is not considered safe for shelf-stable preserving). The yummy result can be used for pie fillings, but are also perfect for cobblers or turnovers, and is equally delicious on pancakes, waffles or cottage cheese at breakfast.
Participants will leave the class with a basic understanding safe canning practices and the important do’s and don’ts of preserving, along with copies of the recipes and a jar of the goodies made in class to take home – enough for a perfect pie anytime!
