Canning 101: Zucchini Dill Pickles, Tuesday August 30th, 6-8 pm

Ever wonder what to do with those humungous zucchinis that end up growing in your garden by the end of the summer? Here’s a delicious alternative to zucchini bread: Zucchini dill pickles! With a crisp texture and zesty flavour, these pickles outshine many typical cucumber types… And they are so easy to make! In this workshop, we’ll combine local zucchinis, garlic, and dill to make great pickles, preserved in glass jars for future enjoyment. We’ll also cover the basics of modern hot-water bath canning techniques, equipment, safety issues, and resources for the home canner. Each participant will take home a small jar of pickles and the recipe.

Location:  the straw bale building at the Greater Victoria Compost Education Centre, 1216 North Park St, Victoria, BC
