Preserving the Harvest – A Hands-On Food Preservation Workshop

with Kate McCarty


Rhubarb is the first sign of spring in Maine and what better way to preserve this vegetable than with some delicious rhubarb chutney. This hands-on food preservation workshop taught my University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Food Preserver, Kate McCarty, will teach you the basic steps for canning. Participants will receive a “Preserving the Harvest” food preservation packet and will learn recommended methods for preserving foods, the latest and safest recipes, about equipment to insure safety and how to check for properly sealed jars. Students will leave with a jar of rhubarb chutney and are asked to bring a potholder to class. Wednesday, 4/26, 5:30pm-8:30pm, GMS, $28 Please note our policy: Cooking classes require a 5 day cancellation notice as they require the advance purchase of perishable products.
