Spend the day with Jen and Anja learning and practicing the ancient technique of preserving.

You'll be able to take away jars of homemade preserves including kraut, jam, bottled fruit, liqueurs that you've made. Every workshop attendee will also receive a free copy of the 'Do Preserve' book.
What you'll learn:
You'll learn step-by-step what you need to do to make your favourite preserved foods. Everything from, how to properly sterilise your equipment, to, learning the specific techniques required to make each individual type of preserved food. You will leave with enough information and the basics to go away and experiment with different ferments.
What you'll make:
- Kraut/kimchi (This is a great one to start with as it is very hands on. You'll be up to your elbows in buckets of cabbage making this one.)
- Bottled fruit and vegetables.
- A seasonal jam.
- Quick pickles (these will be eaten with lunch) and longer shelf life pickle to take home.
- Alcohol. - fruit liqueur - making a delicious liqueur is easy, at it's most basic you just need 3 ingredients.
Good simple food.
Plus teas, coffees, and snacks throughout the day.
