Yes You Can! Making Pickles and Other Yummies

Uploaded: Aug 6, 2017

Some fabulous canning classes are coming up, sponsored by the University of California Cooperative Extension, and their Master Food Preserver program. Check the website for more information on these fee-based classes, and sign up for email notices to keep abreast of upcoming events.

Fall classes meet at Elkus Ranch Environmental Education Center in Half Moon Bay, led by Extension volunteers who teach you how to preserve at home. Participants take home samples of each recipe prepared that day.

Upcoming Classes

Saturday, August 26: Smoking & Condiments

Sunday, September 10: Pickling

Sunday, September 17: Tomatoes

Saturday, October 28: Sourdough

Saturday, November 4: Prepare your Holiday Bar: Salts, Sugars and Garnishes (morning session) and shrubs/syrups (afternoon session)

Saturday, November 18: Holiday Gifts: Chutneys and Pepper Jellies (morning session) and Dehydrating (afternoon session)

If you are a resident of San Mateo or San Francisco county and have interest in teaching others about food preservation and safety, train to become a Master Food Preserver, a program that consists of approximately 50 hours of instruction and hands on activities.
