Make and Can Tomato Salsa


with Alison Carroll Duffy

Calendar Aug 13, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

There is no doubt about it, garden-fresh tomatoes are hard to beat. And even if you don’t grow your own, farmers markets are overflowing with them during the summer--all delicious and locally-grown. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy these summertime tomatoes year round? Well, it’s possible--and one great way to do it is to make and can tomato salsa! Join Allison Carroll Duffy, Master Food Preserver and cookbook author, for this three hour, hands-on workshop, where you’ll learn not only how to make tomato salsa, but also how to can and preserve it. We’ll cover the basics of safe home canning, including proper procedures, techniques, and use of tools and equipment. Then we’ll learn hands-on by making a big batch of tomato salsa, and canning it using the boiling water bath method. There will be plenty of salsa to taste, and each participant will go home with a jar of salsa to enjoy. $10 material fee included. Class size limited. No discounts.
