The OSU Extension – Lane County Master Food Preservers are offering another monthly demonstration class series on preservation techniques! This one will be held at Hartwick’s kitchen store in the 5th St. Market (296 5th Ave., Eugene). To register: 541-686-0126.
Hartwick’s has a beautiful demonstration kitchen, and classes are limited to 12 people, so you can really interact well with the instructor. The classes are in the evenings from 6-8 p.m., and they are offered at the very reasonable price of $30 — not as dirt cheap as the ones we offer at the Extension building, but still a bargain, given that similar classes are offered in Portland for $75-200.
The first class is on September 30, and will feature apples: applesauce, apple pie, apple/tomato chutney, dried apples, and apple butter. In October, we’ll show you how to use up “harvest” products, including pumpkins, corn and apples. November’s class will feature Thanksgiving condiments — ways to spice up your holiday meals.
I’ve posted the dates and times for the October 21 and November 18 classes to the right. Sign up early to reserve your spot!
