After Plant Chicago’s (garden themed) Farmers Market, Join Amanda McLemore of Baguette & Butter to learn simple preserving methods you can do at home.
What you’ll learn:
The workshop will cover how to preserve produce without canning. Each participant will learn simple freezing, drying and curing methods that can both save money, eliminate processed foods which contain excess preservatives and artificial ingredients as well as food packaging. At the end of the demonstration, attendees will get a chance to make their own herb mix to take home as well as recipe cards of the demonstrated preserved foods.
