On Saturday August 28th from 11:00 to 12:30 join Kim Wickwire  at the Parkland Garden Centre for a presentation to the art & Science of home food preservation. We will introduce you to the tools of the trade, as well as food safety concerns. We will discuss all the various ways of ‘putting up’ preserves that you can enjoy through the winter months! Also, will look
at the economics of the ‘work’ that accompanies food processing and the opportunities that may present themselves to make it more economical and fun!
We will demonstrate the steps involved in preparing vegetables and/or fruit for basic ‘canned’ goods as well as combining produce into a recipe of salsa, using tools that we have found to be the most efficient. Even discuss when and where to buy fresh Alberta produce to complete many recipes for savoury or sweet treats! Kim Wickwire teaches food processing at Olds College. She leads the students through many “processes” of preservation using types of prairie vegetables. They are introduced to canning (with vinegar and sugar), freezing, dehydration, fermentation, even the use of infused oils into salves and balms. She is very excited to share what she has learned about the “almost lost arts” with a new generation of gardeners and others that just want to know what is in their food.
The cost for the workshop is $30 and you can be registered by contacting Parkland Garden Centre for more information.
