Canning and Preserving 101- THREE OPEN SPOTS!
Wednesday, May 31st
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Cooking Classroom, $30 per person

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. If you love to eat seasonally and love variety, canning and preserving should be part of your kitchen repertoire. Despite the bubbling cauldrons of jam and mandatory thermometers and squeaky clean equipment, canning can really and truly be a straightforward and easy way to preserve salsas, pickles, jams and more, made from perfectly ripe in season produce that you can enjoy at its peak long after the season is over. In this class, we’ll focus on the basics of canning: what you can and can’t can, the equipment you need, how to choose ingredients, techniques to know and how to prepare fruits and vegetables for canning. Then, Chef Ani will run you through examples of classic canning recipes, including some updates for modern palates, like savory and low sugar jams and pickles that go way beyond cucumbers. Finally, she’ll give you some of her favorite ways to use this bounty of canned items in year-round baking and savory cooking. Come prepared to get a little messy and ask Chef Ani all of your tough canning questions! Please note: dinner will not be served during this class (though their will be snacks), so please plan accordingly. This class is vegan and gluten-free and has hand-on opportunities as desired. Pre-registration is required. On the menu:

  • Low-Sugar Strawberry Vanilla Jam
  • Roasted Tomato Salsa (Perfect for Homegrown Tomatoes!)
  • Spicy Pickled Green Beans
  • Fermented Kimchi
