This post is for my Philly-area readers! I’ve been posted and tweeting about my upcoming events in large, round-up posts, but I wanted to take a minute to pull out two upcoming tomato-centric classes and make sure that you all don’t miss them.
On Wednesday, August 24, I’ll be out in Chestnut Hill with my friends from Weaver’s Way for a class focused on safely making and preserving homemade salsa. This class is from 7-9 pm and costs $30. You can register here.
Then, on Saturday, September 10, I’ll be up in Fishtown with the folks from Greensgrow for another tomato-focused class. In this one, we’ll make tomato jam. This one is from 12-2 pm and costs $35. The registration form is here.
In both of these classes, we’ll dig into the nuts and bolts of safe tomato preservation. We’ll talk about acidification, proper use of the boiling water bath, and I’ll talk you through how to preserve tomatoes in other styles. You’ll also go home with small jars of the preserves we make in class, along with a useful packet of tomato canning information.
I hope to see some of you at these classes!
