Food Preservation Workshop, Simple Living Toowoomba
Date: 14 September
What: This workshop is being run by Rachael from Birdsong Market Garden and Robyn. There’s been a resurgence in preserving at home, and we’re going to look at some of the ways you can save your seasonal surplus. I’ll have some home preserves and common equipment on hand for you to see. Due to time constraints, we won’t be able to demonstrate all of these, but can definitely talk through them and try and answer any questions.
-Pressure Canning (which allows for long term shelf storage of low acid foods, including meat and broth)
-Water Bath Canning (for fruit and higher acid vegetables like tomatoes)
-Preserving in alcohol (tinctures and extracts)
We can also cover where to source bulk produce if you don’t grow it yourself.
As usual please feel free to bring along any handmade goods or excess homegrown produce you would like to share with those attending the workshops.
Where: Range Christian Fellowship, 15 Blake St, Toowoomba.
