Event description

Description

Hard work can be fun and rewarding at the same time. Do you want to learn something new? Or maybe refresh your memory and enjoy the company of other likeminded individuals. Each individual attending will participate in making fresh, homemade tomato sauce. From a discussion in sourcing the tomatoes, to prepping and cooking the sauce. With hands on experience in learning the technique of the hot water bath method for preserving. Everyone will take home a jar of their own sauce to enjoy. We will address in conversation different ways of preserving food; dehydration, freezing, pressure canning, fermenting. With a focus on supporting local food vendors (when possible), the power of shared bulk buying, equipment sharing, and exchanged learning. The evening will conclude with a conversation on issues surrounding food security. Why is food security important? How does preserving food help make individuals food secure? Do you lack the space to store home preserving? Is buying local vegetables in season too expensive? Are you new to home preserving and want some guidance from others? Does tackling a canning project alone overwhelm you? What we, as a community can do to support others?
