Canning Apple Ideas from Slow Food Chicago

November 4, 2011 at 10:04 am

CB036060Like us, our friends at Slow Food Chicago realize that the key to local eating is to set aside some of the seasonal bounty for winter survival.  We can eat local all year.  And we can by canning.  Although the idea of canning still scares many.  To ease concerns and teach basic canning skillks, Slow Food Chicago as organized a series of workshops at the Logan Square Kitchen.  The first set of workshops dealt with canning tomatoes.  The next workshop will cover apples.

Now, if you have your own root cellar, you can simply keep your apples all winter.  Still, many of us, especially city dwellers, do not have converted dark-room root cellars.  We need ways to make-do with our apples.  In addition, who does not want other ways to eat apples besides taking a bite.  Make sauce, relish or chutney.  The Slow Food Chicago apple canning class led by Lis David and Zvi Bar-Chaim of Scratch Homemade will teach you how to take apples from off the tree to in the jar.  And they will show you how to make a delicious and unique Curry Apple Chutney.

Past Slow Food Chicago canning workshops have sold out.  Get your tickets now.
