Join us for a day in our yurt learning how to preserve all of the amazing produce that you have put so much effort into growing.
We look at the multitude of ways to preserve your foods, including:
Jams and chutneys
Salting and curing
Freezing and vacuum packing
Storage - including clamping and sand boxes
We will make jam, chutney, use dehydrating techniques to produce intensely flavoured dried fruits (perfect for with your breakfast granola), produce a fruit cordial and salt and cure a piece of belly pork for bacon.
We will discuss all of the different methods of preserving and the equipment that you may need.
Courses include tea, coffee and pastries on arrival, a glorious lunch then tea, coffee and cake in the afternoon.
You will take home your piece of belly pork to finish off curing at home, jam, chutney, recipe cards and hopefully a big smile and huge sense of achievement!
Courses run from 9:30 - 16:30
The atmosphere is relaxed, the delivery enthusiastic and the content both enjoyable and educational.
Numbers are limited to maximum 10 people
Salting & curing
Freezing & vac packing
Storing - clamps, sand boxes
