Preserve Low Acid Foods at Home
Have you always wanted to learn how to preserve the produce growing in your vegetable garden (or from a good sale at the market) and just weren't sure how to go about starting? Well, then mark your calendar and purchase your ticket for the Whitehall Kitchen Preserving Food workshop! This class will focus on preserving LOW ACID foods using a pressure canner.
Preserving your own food is easier than you might think. It’s a great way to have delicious, local food all year long. Especially helpful for home gardeners with a bounty to put up, or after a visit to a pick-your-own site. Learn how to safely preserve the foods you like to eat at home. In this class will focus on pressure canning methods, used for preserving low-acid foods. Pressure canning is the recommended, safe way to preserve foods that are low in acid content, such as green beans, corn, soups, broths, and meat.
Each hands-on workshop will review safe methods, different equipment available, and supplies needed. No prior experience or supplies are needed for any workshop.
Your host, Kris MacPherson, owner of Whitehall Kitchen, has been canning and preserving for 10+ years and is excited to help get you started on your preserving journey!
Intended audience: Adults age 18 years or older (please no small children)
Format: Each workshop is 2 1/2-3 hours. Due to the length of time a normal pressure canning session takes, workshops will only focus on processing stock/broth but the steps to make other foods will be covered.
Fee: $55 per person
Private Lessons and group parties are available as well. Please reach out directly to schedule.
