In partnership with Riverford, the lovely organic veg box people, I offer seasonal preserving workshops. We cover all the basics of preserving fruits and vegetables and together we make five you can take home.
You'll learn about sterilising jars, using sugar, salt and vinegar correctly as preservatives, reaching ‘setting point’ for jams and jellies, safe bottling and more. Class sizes are kept small and very hands-on. As well as your filled jars, there are recipes and guidance notes to take home.
At the Summer workshops we plan to make:
Strawberry & rhubarb jam
Bread & butter pickles
Spicy courgette chutney
Bottled brandied summer fruits
The exact menu may change slightly nearer the time when we know what produce the fields will be yielding!
"I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. It was a really friendly atmosphere, and it was really hands on, and I felt that I have learnt a lot."
“Thank you for another lovely day of preserving. Once again learnt lots with lovely lunch, good company and goodies to take away - perfect!”
"What a fabulous teacher you are! So patient and calm! I learnt loads."
