Preserving 101: Canning & Drying Tomatoes, Oakland

January 9, 2013

Tomatoes are here!!  October might as well be tomato month – it’s the month we’ve eaten all the fresh tomatoes we can stand and need to find a way to put them up for winter use.

This class will cover all the canning and drying basics as we preserve a gigantic tomato harvest.  We’ll chop, chop, chop, cook, can and dry to our heart’s content, showing you tips and tricks along the way to be a successful and happy preserver of all things good and delicious.

Attendees go home with a sampling of what we make that day – usually some canned diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and maybe even some salsa!
