On Wednesday night, Orb had the pleasure of attending a canning and preserving workshop put on by Stacey of Tortoise and Hare Slow Foods andTricia and Alicia of The World in a Garden. The idea behind the workshop was to make the most of your summer harvest - don't have a garden? Fear not! Stock up on local produce at a farmer's market and get to it!
Stacey led the group in sterilizing the mason jars, chopping and cooking the ingredients and filling and sealing the jars, all while sharing many helpful tips - passed on to her by Grandma Smith :) By the end of the class we each had a jar of blueberry jam, applesauce and stewed tomatoes - delicious!
Be sure to check out A World in a Garden's site for more wonderful workshops and events.
