Join the lady farmers of Amber Waves to learn about a few of their favorite preservation techniques.
Learn how to preserve the summer bounty of delicious tastes and beautiful colors with the lady farmers at Amber Waves! We’ll discuss our favorite tips, techniques & recipes that help us survive through the long winter.
We’ll learn the basics of preservation through dehydrating, canning, freezing and boozing! We will be drying flowers and herbs, making Adrienne’s famous peach chipotle hot sauce, and infusing vodka with fruit. We'll also talk about blanching, freezing, and oil infusing. During the class, participants will enjoy sun tea and herb infused sparkling water together. Each participant will take a few of these items to start stocking their winter pantry along with a packet of information to replicate our recipes at home. At the end of the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to head into the field with one of the Amber Waves's farmers to harvest some tomatoes, peppers or tomatillos to continue practicing preserving at home! All levels of experience are welcome.
