Winter preserving workshops, 11th, 12th & 13th Feb 2011
In association with Riverford, the lovely organic veg box people, I offer seasonal preserving workshops. I cover all the basics of preserving fruits and vegetables and together we make five you can take home.
You will 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 (max 8 people) and very hands-on. As well as your filled jars, there are recipes and guidance notes to take home.
The February workshops will be a citrus extravaganza and include the likes of (subject to produce availability):
Seville orange marmalade
Moroccan preserved lemons
Spiced pickled oranges
Blood orange & port jelly
Dates: Friday 11th, repeated Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th February 2011
Time: 10am – 3pm on Friday and Saturday; 11am – 4pm on Sunday
Location: London N5
Price: £60 (includes light lunch)
“The pace was just right- a good combination of a bit of the science behind preserving, a hands on approach to learning, and the opportunity to chat and discuss. I think the size of the class was ideal.”
