Join us for Part Two of our September Wild Foods Preservation series!
The abundance of autumn is one of the greatest joys in homestead life. Whether you are growing this food yourself or harvesting wild foods, the fruits of a year's growth is well earned and most welcomed. We humans have spent thousands of years perfecting recipes and methods for preserving most foods we consume throughout the winter months and through the following spring. In this class we explore a wide variety of key harvests and cover a few methods (both modern and traditional) for putting by these foods. We will talk nuts, meat/plants/fruits, learn a few recipes for pickling and fermentation, and demystify hot water bath and pressure canning.
$35-$45 sliding scale in advance
$5 additional fee for on-site registrations
