In the workshop you will learn how to make 2 different preserves; one chutney and one jam.
You will have your own utensils and equipment and you will be spaced out in the kitchen to allow distance between guests - there will be a maximum of 2 guests booked on any course in the preserving workshop.
Guided by myself through instruction and demonstration you will prepare and process seasonal fruit and vegetables into delicious preserves that you will take home with you at the end of the day.
The day will begin with a tasting session of different types of jams and chutneys. This will be followed by a brief overview of how preserving works, the equipment needed and basic jam/chutney making methods.
You will then cook at your own work station, by induction hob or gas hob, in a friendly, informal atmosphere.
Throughout the day everything you need to prepare and make your preserves will be supplied, including a restorative cup of tea or coffee.
You will make a chutney in the morning followed by a jam after lunch.
Having labelled your preserves, you take home all the jars and chutneys you make.
Lunch offers another opportunity to sample home made food using seasonal produce.
Each workshop is based around ingredients that are seasonally available or preserved through freezing or dehydration.
Dates can be arranged to suit you outside of those scheduled.
