- I”Bitterness is the richest and most intellectually satisfying flavour that exists.”
—Andoni Luis Aduriz
It’s peak citrus season and there’s no better way to preserve them than by transforming them into bittersweet marmalade.
In this workshop master preserver Camilla Wynne will dive deep into marmalade, from its storied history to creative modern day recipes. We will sample different styles and flavours, and learn safe canning practices. In the kitchen we will prepare two different marmalades using distinct methods and customizable flavours. You will leave with a jar of each, ready to tackle any canning project and able to safely modify recipes to your taste.
You will leave with a jar of each preserve, ready to tackle any fruit canning project and able to safely modify recipes to your taste. Camilla’s preserving cookbook, Preservation Society Home Preserves, will be available for sale.
