Water bath canning is an essential tool for the home preserver and a great way to transform the bounty of summer and fall into shelf-stable food.

Cost includes seasonal fruit that will be used to make preserves to bring home.

For an additional $20 fee, participants can go home with an airlock for pickling. Please select airlock optionwhen registering. Fermenting, pickling, and culturing are ancient traditions that make foods tastier, easier to digest, and more nutrient-dense. With a basic grasp of how these techniques work, they’re easy and fun, even for busy folks. Participants will leave with a batch of pickles and a kombucha kit.
