The Charlottesville Cooking School :: Canning Class!

Learning how to can has been on my wish list for a very long time. The thought of winter pantry shelves stocked with rows of Ball mason jars makes my heart race.

On August 29th, I will be taking a class at The Charlottesville Cooking School with Leni Sorensen. Here's a description:

Learn the art of canning peaches and tomatoes at this fun and interactive class with Leni Sorensen. Leni is a culinary historian at Monticello. Each student will leave with one jar of tomatoes and one jar of peaches.

I especially love that it is interactive, as that is the only way I absorb anything these days.

Thinking I might treat myself to this, too. I hear that it is the bible of all-things-canning-slash-preserving.

Also, apparently this:

is the bible of canning. And priced accordingly.

Oh, yay, Catherine!!!

"Preserving the Taste's" subtitle should be "And Leaving You Broke."

The class sounds great! I hope you take enough away to be able to stock your shelves with your own harvest.
So far, we can pickles (cold pack) and freeze tomato sauce.
