Food Preserving 101

What to expect
  • Learn the fundamentals of preserving homegrown produce safely
  • Master dehydration, freezing, and canning techniques
  • Take home a can of strawberry jam that you prepare yourself
  • Relax in a social hands-on course where you’ll learn a valuable new skill
Growing your own fruits and vegetables to decrease your reliance on store produce can be a liberating life-decision… Right up until they rot a few days after your harvest them. If you’re a novice when it comes to preserving foods, this introductory course will help get you out of this jam (by showing you how to make jam). You’ll be learning the finer points of freezing, dehydrating, and canning from an organics specialist. After a food safety overview and some basic instruction, you’ll be getting hands-on practice in these techniques. For the purpose of this instruction, you’ll be working with ripe, delicious strawberries. Afterwards, you’ll get to take the strawberry jam you make home with you!
