Preserving Workshop


It’s coming to the end of the fruit season. This season’s fruit on the whole, was rather disappointing, but thankfully we are in the midst of a bumper crop of Cling peaches from the cooking school food gardens. Come celebrate the crop at Wickedfood Earth Farm. At the Country Cooking School, we will show you 6 delicious ways of locking all that summer goodness up in a bottle to enjoy at a later date, as well as teaching you the secrets of successful preserving and bottling in this preserving workshop. And to crown it all off, enjoy a peach inspired lunch and take home 6 bottles of preserves one sample of each product made during the cooking workshop.

Techniques covered in this workshop will include:

  • General principles of preserving and preparing fruit for processing, including some secrets on easy pealing difficult fruit;
  • Working with sugar, vinegar, spices and herbs;
  • Bottling of whole fruit in syrup and alcohol;
  • Jam making;
  • Interesting fruit and vegetable combinations for chutneys and relishes;
  • How to make delicious fruit sauces and syrups.
