Have you ever wanted to preserve your garden's produce in a way other than a freezer bag? Interested in making unique gifts with your special kitchen creations? Tired of paying lots for natural, organic sauces and soups? Crave the exquisite flavor and color of summer veggies in mid-winter?
Come learn how to can your produce and goodies in those glass jars that allow you to enjoy the food even when you're not eating it! The workshop, held in a beautiful Wicker Park kitchen, will demonstrate the cold-pack water bath method, for preserving vegetables from your garden, and any non-meat sauces and goodies you create from them! We'll put up a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce or southwestern style posole (depending on this season's garden production) and have a light meal of the same while the batch processes. You'll leave with handouts, a pint of homemade goodies (serves 2), and the know-how to get started!
