Summer Preserving, Fri 4th, Sat 5th & Sun 6th July 2014
In partnership with Riverford, the lovely organic veg box people, I offer seasonal preserving workshops. We cover all the basics of preserving fruits and vegetables and together we make five you can take home.
You’ll learn about sterilising jars, using sugar, salt and vinegar correctly as preservatives, reaching ‘setting point’ for jams and jellies, safe bottling and more. Class sizes are kept small and very hands-on. As well as your filled jars, there are recipes and guidance notes to take home.
At the Summer workshops we will make:
Strawberry & rhubarb jam
Bread & butter pickles
Spicy courgette chutney
Bottled brandied summer fruits
The exact menu may change slightly nearer the time when we know what produce the fields and orchards will be yielding!
Thanks again for such a brilliant day and for sharing your wonderful skills. I can’t believe how much we made and how much I learned in your lovely kitchen!
