CLASS DETAILS:

A great introduction to preserving – make pickles, chutney & flavoured vinegar

For centuries the craft of preserving kept cupboards and bellies full when there was little fresh food around. Today we continue to preserve seasonal produce to eat sustainably and reduce food waste, plus it’s really fun! In this hands-on workshop you will learn what fruit and vegetables are available in what season and how best to preserve them to enjoy later. From sterilising to storage, we will teach you everything you need to know about preserving safely. This is a great class to begin your preserving adventures with lots of opportunity to taste and discuss this essential kitchen skill.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE?

  • A pear & rosemary chutney
  • A jar of fennel pickles
  • A herb & citrus vinegar

OTHER INFORMATION

At the end of class you will enjoy a Cornersmith plate with plenty of pickles and cheese, a glass of wine or house-made non-alcoholic beverage

Good for: Beginner preservers and those who want to enhance their preserving knowledge

What to expect in a Cornersmith workshop
All our workshops are relaxed with a focus on home cooking skills. We keep our numbers small (12-16 people) to maximize your experience, and engagement with the topic and the teacher. You will leave with the knowledge and confidence to continue your cooking adventures at home. 

In our hands-on workshops, you will make a number of recipes, with some to enjoy in class and the rest to take home, along with all of the recipes. We recommend bringing a few spare jars or containers to these workshops (in case any extra is made) and a carry bag to take your bounty home in. 

In our demonstration classes, you will be shown the recipe/s step by step, with plenty of tasters along the way. There is no need for spare jars or containers in these classes. If you are unsure of what type your class is, please check the description of your workshop on our website or call 02 8964 7463
