Having just found out I have to fly to Ottawa this weekend and will be gone for the rest of the month, I am a bit disappointed to find out about this awesome Vancouver Farmer’s Market series on preserving food for winter. But I’m also really pleased to see food preservation workshops in such an accessible place and format.
Using a VanCity grant, the Farmer’s Market has rounded up two local chefs – Andrea Potter (of Radha Eatery) and Denise Fantinato (of Deni’s Delights) to provide the basics on drying, freezing, pickling *and* canning! How awesome is that?
(BTW – since I used a squash picture as a feature on this post I should just say that my favourite way to store summer squash is cook, puree and freeze. Makes a great tomato sauce additive!)
