Growing in the Twin Cities with Backyard Harvest

Building a sustainable (and delicious) urban food system – one yard at a time

Yep, it’s another Canning Bee on Nov 7 October 29, 2010

Filed under: Events — Krista Leraas @ 6:44 pm

Our first canning bee was so popular that we decided to hold another one!

In the spirit of “using what you have” and leveraging community assets, please join Backyard Harvest in our SECOND canning bee.  Backyard Harvest and local preservationist Jill Jacoby are teaming up to help you preserve your bounty and share the use of canning equipment for individuals new to canning.  Participants will learn proper home-canning techniques, and each take home jars according to the amount they bring.

Bring your cool-season crops or what’s available at the farmer’s markets, and we provide the rest.  Base fee covers kitchen rental, pantry items, equipment, and a certified Food Manager; 50 cents for each glass jar you use (or bring your own).

Fall Canning Ideas:
Pickling– beets, brussel sprouts, peppers, etc.
Green Tomato Mincemeat, pickles, relish
Apple Sauce, Apple Butter, Apple Pie Filling,
Pumpkin Spread
Picallili (zucchini, carrots, cauliflower)
Cranberry relish, cranberry jelly, etc.

When: Sunday, November 7 starting at 1:00pm for first-time canners, 1:30pm for repeat canners and going through 5pm
Where: St. Olaf Community Campus, 2901 Emerson Ave N, Minneapolis
Cost: $10 plus cost of jars used. Please bring cash to the event.
To register: Contact Jill at 414-708-8191 or by November 4th
