Preserving Harvest: A Canning Workshop / Sept 7, 2019 / 9a-12p
Join me in the mountains of Montana for a morning of putting up food! In this hands-on, three-hour workshop you will learn the ins and outs of preserving high acid food using a boiling water bath in your home kitchen.
We will gather in my mom's home kitchen where I will share my simple, safe and predictable techniques for making jams, sauces, pickles and salsas. You will learn, help and leave with a goody bag of canning supplies and a jar of jam.
Canning food can feel hard at first. There is so much to keep track of, science to learn, methods to perfect...and what if I make my family sick? The truth is, canning food is incredibly satisfying and easy. It's true! Once you get the basics down, you will be able to save tons of money while preserving food at the height of taste and nutrient value. You will bask in the glory of a shelf full of delicious food that will feed your family all year well after the seasons change.
All supplies included.
We will spend a full three hours in the kitchen where I will teach you all about canning and we will make jam. You'll also get to make your own canning labels while snacking on homemade bread and an assortment of homemade jams.
- Jar of homemade jam.
- A copy of my full color canning guide including step by step instructions, tool list, altitude chart and recipes.
- Enrollment in my online canning course including permanent access to private online community.
- Four high-quality canning essentials: wire rack, jar lifter, magnetic lid lifter and stainless steel wide-mouth funnel. (Other than jars, a stock pot and a ladle, this is all you need to can!)

This is the 3rd workshop i have attended through Dig This Chick. I cannot get enough!!! The canning workshop was so great. For me, i can pick up a "how to" book and dive right into it but at the end of the day to watch someone can, and talk me through the process is just so much more gratifying and easier to continue doing. There are so many pieces to canning that it can seem really overwhelming but once I watched someone through the process and was able to ask my questions it all became easy. Having the ability to can my "garden" at the end of the season an even during was so gratifying. Now i feel less wasteful, not to mention, is there anything more gratifying than a shelf of canned vegetables? Dig this Chick, you hit it out of the ballpark again, thanks!
