Preserving Workshop

January 8th, 2018


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.
