Our Cooking Lab classes teach the basic science and techniques all cooks need to know, and will teach you to understand the causes and effects of your actions in the kitchen. We examine various cooking methods and ingredients to discover parallels that will amaze you. Your view of cooking may well be transformed!
In today's class, we'll teach you all about the specific tools, techniques and canning ingredients so you have a solid understanding of how to properly "put up" this summer's fruits and veggies to enjoy them for months to come. Gain the knowledge to work with different types of pectin, how to prepare your mason jars and how to safely can in a water bath. Once you get started you won't be able to stop! These make wonderful gifts for family and friends, or keep them for yourself! Each student will take home at least one jar of each recipe. Vegetarian menu!
Peach-Vanilla Jam; Red and Green Hot Pepper Jelly; Roasted Poblano and Fresh Tomato Salsa; Bread and Butter Pickles. A variety of snacks will be provided so you can taste your way throughout the class.
Skills Covered in Class Include: Understanding Canning and Pickling; Selecting Produce for Canning; Preparing Pickling Brines; Balancing Flavors; Working with Pectin; Using Herbs, Spices and Aromatic Ingredients.
Due to the layout of our kitchens and in consideration of your classmates, students will work in groups of 3 to 5 people. Parties of 6 or more will be directed to our private events department so we can accommodate them appropriately.
