Preserving the Harvest at EarthLinks

By now the garden should be bringing us ripe tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, tasty greens, and other veggies and fruit… but what to do with all this bounty?

Join us for a day of workshops focused on Preserving the Harvest! We’ll start at 10am with a workshop on Canning and Drying food with Clara Morris of the Cowtown Grangers. After lunch at noon, we’ll reconvene for an Intro to Fermentation class (covering Kombucha, Sauerkraut and more) at 1pm with Eileen Roscina Richardson of Cook and Culture. Be ready for hands-on lessons. Kombucha "mothers" available for purchase!

10am: Canning and Drying Workshop ($5-20 suggested donation)
12pm: Lunch
1-2pm: Fermentation Workshop ($5-20 suggested donation)

    Thanks to everyone who is planning on attending! I'm excited to learn some new skills with you all. Are there any specific skills or recipes that you'd like us to cover on Saturday? Let me know and I'll see if we can work it it!

      Hoping the preserving session will cover using Pomona Pectin for low-sugar/honey canning. And food drying-how to construct home-built dryer racks & methods for solar drying

    I am just as learner who likes to eat well and always find that none of us knows as much as all of us. I will be there. I am looking forward to it.

    I am going to have a ton of squash, zucchini and tomatoes from my garden and would like to preserve them. I'm not sure if the soft flesh will hold up to pickling so any suggestions would be great!
