Radio Interview and Workshop Recap

Well, it's been a busy Preservation Society week! In addition to canning pints and quarts of Dilly Pickled Beans and Special Dill Pickles, I taught a workshop and was on the radio!

My interview on CBC's All in a Weekend aired this morning, but you can listen to it on their website here. Please do!

On Thursday night I taught a workshop on preserving stone fruits at Depanneur Le PickUp. I gave a talk about canning basics while participants chopped fruit and then we headed into the kitchen to make Mont-Royal Plums in Vanilla Syrup and Nectarine Jam with Sapote. It was a really lovely experience for me, and I hope everyone who came enjoyed themselves and took something away from it (other than the two jars of preserves).

Lucky for me, one participant was a photographer and took some great shots. All below are courtesy of Lysanne Larose.

Preserving Workshop

I will be teaching my first workshop on the art and science of canning next Thursday, August 25th.
The class will take place at my former place of employment, Depanneur Le Pick Up at 8pm.
On account of the season, the focus will be on preserving stone fruits, such as apricots, nectarines, plums, and peaches, which are all amazing right now. We'll start with a general talk on canning techniques, then move on to making one jam and one fruit preserved in syrup, of which everyone will take home a jar.
That's a pretty excellent value for $25!
