Night Out @ the Pie Shoppe: Real Cooking Is Simple

Cooking Class:  PUT A LID ON IT!

Using ingredients procured from a local U-Pick, we will discover how to create great food in a fun and collegial environment. 

Hot water bath canning is a homesteading staple, and a favourite way for chef Kevin Waddell to preserve food for the winter, due to its shelf stability, ease, and usefulness during a zombie apocalypse.

A light meal will begin the night as we discuss food safety skills to be aware of, followed by hands-on canning, which you will then take home.  To provide a variety of flavours to take home, each group will make different recipes, using the same techniques, each for:

Jams and sweet things.

Tomatoes and savoury condiments.

Cucumbers and pickled things.

$40 per person, $65 for two if you bring a friend!

Registrants will also be able to register for future hot water bath canning classes at a reduced cost, where we will go over similar techniques, but with different recipes, to help build your larder.

Add-on: $150 canning kit + home canning instructional and recipe book
