Canning 101: Caramelized Onion Jam, Tuesday May 22nd, 6-8 pm

It’s spring, and that means we need to empty the root cellar of what remains from last year’s onion harvest! Don’t have a root cellar? Not a problem: The recipe for this sweet and savory jam can be made with regular store-bought onions too. In this workshop, we’ll combine onions with other natural ingredients to make a special spread that tastes great in sandwiches, with meats, or simply on crackers. The jam will be 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 jam and the recipe.

Location:  The straw bale building at the Compost Education Centre, 1216 North Park St

Suggested donation:  $10
