Class - EXTENDING YOUR HARVEST - Preserved Lemons, Curing Olives, Dehydrating, Salt

Extending Your Harvest:  Dehydration and Salt
Time: February 16, 2013  (Saturday) from 10am to 11:30am
Location: Sea of Green Hydroponics - Tempe
Street: 1301 E University Dr, Suite 101
City/Town: Tempe, AZ

Event Type: class
Organized By: Christopher Henggeler

Instructor: Kaesha Neil
The Extending Your Harvest series of classes help you to explore the many different methods available for preserving the abundance of your garden (or local markets) for less abundant times of the year. Preserved foods also make great, and often unique, gifts. Learning how to preserve your own foods not only helps reduce food waste and increase local food sustainability, but it lets you choose the best methods for yourself and control what goes into your food. Discover the culinary and flavor possibilities that often cannot be purchased at the store!

This class in the series addresses preservation methods that involve dehydration and salt. Basic methods, sample recipes, and how to use the preserved foods are presented. Because it is not as readily self-evident, we will discuss extensively what to do with dehydrated food once your cupboards are full of them. Topics include leathers, vegetable stock, preserved lemons, and curing olives.

Please sign in with the volunteers at the door.

$15 fee is payable with cash or check. (Make checks out to Valley Permaculture Alliance).

Note on directions: Sea of Green Hydroponics is located at the intersection of E University and S Dorsey, and can be found be turning south on Dorsey and then east into the parking lot. Suite 101 is where the classes will be held.
