Slow Food Catskills canning workshop set
The Slow Food Catskills convivium will be hosting a canning workshop on Sunday, Sept. 7 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Delaware County Historical Association grounds. Entitled “Putting It Up - Preserving the Harvest,” this workshop will educate people on how to preserve food grown from their gardens or from local farms so that it can be enjoyed during the winter months.
Four canning stations will be set up under the big tent on the DCHA lawn. Each canning station will be limited to 10 people so reservations will ensure your space. Empty spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own canning jars (quart size) and produce (only tomatoes, cauliflower, cucumbers, carrots and string beans). Pickeling and the water bath method will be taught.
Teachers are Rosalie Glauser of Slow Down Food Company in Andes, Diane Frances of La Basse Cour Farm in Kortright, Colleen Blackwell of the Environmental Working Group in Oneonta, and Grace Kathmann of East Meredith.
The event will be free to the public; at-will donations are appreciated. Half of the proceeds will go to the DCHA. For more information visit slowfoodcats.com.
