Want to capture the taste of summer? Put up those tomatoes in the garden and taste summer all year around! In this class we discuss canning tomatoes and learn the blanching process for whole tomatoes, the difference between hot and cold packing, and make a simple Italian sauce for soups and stews. This is a make-and-take class and you will get a pint of Italian tomatoes to take home. We will also cover making salsa and marinara and provide recipes for several ways to can tomatoes.
Class will be held at Next to Nature Farm, 23338 Kissinger Road, Leavenworth, KS 66048. Class will begin at 2 p.m. (approximately 2 hours for class).
Participants will also receive safety information for canning, handouts, and recipes for further canning experiences. Class is limited to 8 participants and pre-registration is required.
