In the vegetable preservation class, learn how and why you need to pressure can vegetables and soups, how to make versatile vegetable powders, and how to create your own gourmet pickles.
There will be a lot of topics presented; get comfortable! We’ll incorporate a few simple hands-on activities to keep you focused and provide a light meal mid-way through the class. You’ll leave with lots of recipes and ideas to try on your own at home.
