Some of the most appreciated gifts, treats and specialty foods can come from our own gardens and kitchens.
This course will give you the confidence and knowledge to make use of everything your garden has to offer.
You will learn how to make the yummiest jams, with minimal use of sugar, how to quickly preserve fruit like plums or pears, how to use the sun or an electric dehydrator to make delicious healthy snacks and, most importantly, how to make your precious creations keep.
We will only use basic recipes with 2 to 4 ingredients but with potential to ‘pep them up’. Variations and gourmet options will be discussed.
This course is held at the peak of the harvest season so that everything students learn is relevant and can be put into practice immediately. Most of the recipes can be used at home with only a medium sized pot, sugar, salt and vinegar plus the produce.
All learning will be hands-on and each participant will be able to take home what they created.
No extra material costs are involved if students provide their own glass jars and produce.
The tutor will provide materials for session 1.
