Suddenly it is August. The past few months we have been hopping over here at Manning Canning preserving some of the amazing Ontario fruits and vegetables that the farmer's at The Ontario Food Terminal have had on offer. But we have also been extremely busy teaching others the fun and amazing art of preserving.
You might not know this, but in addition to our monthly preserving classes at The Depanneur (please note there is no class in August, but we will be back with a vengeance in September) we are also offering classes in conjunction with Fairmount Park Farmer's Market and our next class is September 10th where we will be making Pickled Hot Peppers and then we return on October 8th for Apple Pie in a Jar.
And then for those of you that really want to learn how to preserve but can't make any of the classes currently on offer, there is the option of private preserving classes. How great is that? You get to learn how to preserve and you don't even need to leave the comfort of your home. Invite a group of friends over, and I do all the rest. I bring all of the canning equipment, ingredients, pots and pans, etc.
Before the class, we determine what you are most interested in learning how to preserve. Is it pickles, or jam or chutney and we choose a date that works for everyone.
