These exclamations and check-list surveys are important at our restaurant, and though I have dillied and pickled and relished my vegetables, I don’t always think of the easy and fun little tricks that Cooperative Extension Food Specialist Lisa Fishman revealed to me in the planning for our Four Food Preservation Classes, scheduled to begin next Tuesday!
We see this as an opportunity to celebrate the HANDS-ON method of measuring and mixing, calculating and choosing, bottling and storing condiments, jams, jellies, oils, vinegars and pickles. How about a nice orange-scented cleaning vinegar? Better than bleach! How about ginger-berry refrigerator jam? Feta, roasted pepper, & garlic olive oil? I can’t wait to see what apothecary delights we come up with! Bring fancy bottles on March 4, as we create herb infused vinegars!
The other details you might want to know – THESE CLASSES ARE FOR MEN AND WOMEN! Also, we will have a limited menu, as we are usually not open on Tuesday evenings. We will sell wine, champagne and beer on these Tuesday evenings, as well. So you might want to consider saving your appetite for some delicious Tapas and Spirits!
Please register by calling 1-800-287-1421 – with Lisa Fishman at the Cooperative Extension Services Office, or call The Whole Potato Cafe at 554-4258!
You are what you make for a life!
