Tomato Preservation Workshop July 27 1PM

This class is supported by the Emerson Ave. Community Garden and is part of their educational program.

Join us at the Westchester United Methodist Church on July 27th, 1-3:30pm for our Tomato Preservation class.   Taught by master food preserver, Elizabeth Sala, and assisted by master gardener Dana Morgan, in this class we’ll discuss

  • Hot water bath canning for tomatoes and tomato sauce
  • Food Safety: best practices to keep you and your family safe
  • Drying/dehydration and freezing tomatoes
  • Using a food mill to prepare roasted tomato sauce (Tomato Pasata)

Each student may bring a couple pounds of homegrown tomatoes to can.  All will be involved in the canning process and preparation of a delicious seasoned tomato sauce, which can be served with pasta.

What to bring:  Please arrive promptly at 1:00 with a notebook and pen, cutting board, and a medium size bowl.  Also bring a   sharp knife that can cut through tomato skins.  An apron is recommended.
