Among the dishes you may be preparing are West African Chicken in Peanut Sauce, Jollof Rice (West African Paella), Gusi Dessi (Spinach, kale, and collard greens, cooked with melon seeds, cooked in a reduced tomato sauce; served with white rice), and West African tapioca pudding cooked in lemongrass broth with choice of vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

Preserving the Harvest - Steam Canning

$25

with Vina Lindley, Five Town CSD Adult & Community Education

Calendar Oct 6, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 2 weeks

Recent testing at the University of Wisconsin has indicated that atmospheric steam canning is a safe alternative to the traditional water bath canning method for use in preserving high-acid foods at home. An atmospheric steam canner, an appliance designed to preserve foods using steam, uses less energy and requires less heavy lifting than a waterbath canner. Join University of Maine Cooperative Extension staff to learn about this method, as well as general best practices for home food preservation. We will prepare a recipe using this method based on what is in peak season at the time of the workshop. Each participant will take part in this hands-on workshop and go home with a canned product and a “Preserving the Harvest” food preservation packet. Please bring a potholder.
