Preserving the Harvest

On this two day course you will reap and forage all the main ingredients for our shared meals. All foraged food from the Inkpot's abundant land will be brought back to the kitchen. We will then work together to preserve the harvest. This will cover such techniques as fermentation (from cider to sauerkraut); drying (apple and pear rings); jams, chutneys, pickling, oils and bottling. There will be lots of sampling along the way.

Start Date: 
Saturday, September 29, 2018 - 09:30
End Date: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018 - 16:30
