Daily Acts’ Workshop: Canning and Drying the Homegrown Harvest
Savor the flavors of the season by preserving the bounty of summer! We’ll make it so simple and easy, anyone can do it. Take home a jar of homegrown tastiness and knowledge to do it yourself!
Join the homegrown revolution and learn a simple canning technique for acid fruits and tomatoes. In this workshop, Rachel will discuss safety issues, equipment, ingredients and theory. She’ll cover water bath, flip kettle and steam canning, and then you’ll experience first-hand how the process works. You’ll get a chance to try-out your new skills by making fruit sauce. We’ll also touch on other forms of food preservation including solar drying and dehydration basics. Learn how to build your own solar drying rack.
