Table Talk and Fall 2010 Classes

Got canning questions? I’ve got answers! Tomorrow at 1 p.m. (10 a.m. west coast time), I’ll be joining Kim O’Donnel (who’s got a lovely new book hitting the shelves soon) on her weekly chat over at Culinate. We’ll be talking about canning, preserving and what to do with the barrage of end-of-season produce. Please come and join us!

Fall is coming, but that doesn’t mean that the time for canning is coming to an end. I firmly believe that there’s plenty of canning to be done straight through the autumn months. I’ve got a series of four jam and chutney classes scheduled September through December that take advantage of all those sweet, crisp apples and pears. These classes cost $45 per person and are all scheduled for Saturday mornings, 11 a.m. through 12:30 p.m.

September 18
Spicy Applesauce

October 23
Pear-Ginger Jam

November 6
Cranberry Apple Jam

December 4
Apple-Pear Chutney

Additionally, I’ve been thinking about offering a sauerkraut class. If you’d be interested in something like that, please leave a comment on this post, so I can determine whether there’s enough interest.

Mark your calendars, canners! This Thursday, August 5 at 12 noon (eastern time), I’ll be participating in a  web chat with Jim Coleman, host of the WHYY show A Chef’s Table. We’ll be answering canning questions between 12 – 1 p.m., so if you’ve got a burning quandary, now’s your chance to get an answer.
