Latest Activity: Feb 26, 2010
From 6 to 9 pm, Wednesday, February 24, 2010, a Home Food Preserving Workshop will be held at the Varna Community Center, 943 Dryden Road (Rte 366). Members of IthaCan will lead hands-on activities in canning, cellaring, pickling, and drying.
The event starts with a slide show on why home food preservation is needed for a sustainable food system. Then you can choose two of the four techniques – drying, canning, cellaring, and pickling – and go to two workshops.
We hope you'll join us for this event! It's a great way to learn new skills and connect --in person-- with people who are interested in preserving food at home.
And... psst! Enjoy a few take-home goodies, such as: jam, dried apples, fruit leather, vacuum-packed wheat, and kim chi or kraut.
