Our grandmas bottled and preserved seasonal produce out of necessity, but today we do it for less pressing, more fun reasons: to explore creativity in the kitchen, to know exactly what’s in our food, to have tasty pickles and chutneys immediately accessible for a quick meal, and so we can say, “I made them myself!” Also, if you grow your own food, you know that sometimes a harvest results in a surplus. Preserving is the answer.
In this workshop, we’ll cover four types of preserving techniques: bottling, pick l ing, making jams and chutneys. We’ll also cover sterilising equipment and storage practices to ensure long-lasting and great-tasting jars of food. You’ll participate in every step of the process and will get to take home everything you make. This class includes an afternoon tea with samples of the preserves that your teacher, Maria, has made in her own kitchen. You’ll take home the insights and skills to prepare preserves you’ll relish for months to come.
What to bring:
- Just yourself!
What you’ll get:
- Four jars of preserves to take home
- A booklet authored by the teacher Maria, detailing safe preserving techniques
- Copies of all the recipes made on the day
- Learn four different preserving techniques
- How to safely preserve your food
- Sterilising and storage techniques necessary
- Mixed Berry Jam & Fruit Chutney
- Middle Eastern Pickled Veggies
- Cinnamon Bottled Pears
- Sturdy bag to take your preserves home
