Head up to the mountains to learn in the gorgeous Teaching Kitchen of the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia. During this hands-on class, we’ll share stories of “eating from the land,” how generations before us valued the art of canning, and get in the kitchen to experience it ourselves! Students will take home recipes and a jar of each finished product, featuring locally grown produce.
"Growing up, my dad always had a huge garden; sometimes two. Even at his current age, it’s the thing that gives him great pride and pleasure every year. Some of things we could always count on enjoying year-round were his tomatoes, green beans, peas, peppers, squash, okra, and if the weather conditions were on his side, lots of corn. In Preserving Summer’s Harvest, it’s a salute to things my dad gave us kids growing up, and the practice of canning my mom learned from her mom, grandmother, and other relatives. It’s my pleasure to pass along some of their tips and samples with students who want to share the communal experience of home canning." - Brenda Hill, The Passionate Preserver
