Seasonal Canning Workshop: Strawberry Rhubarb Butter, Tuesday June 19th, 6-8 pm

The weather’s warming up here on the Island, and that means the local strawberries are coming into their own! At this hands-on workshop,
we’ll celebrate these fruits by combining them with rhubarb and flavourings to make a batch of heavenly, spreadable Strawberry Rhubarb Butter.

As a change from the typical fast speed of cooking jam, this recipe is made in a slow-cooker, which is a neat tool to add to your home canning skill set. As we can the fruit butter in glass jars to preserve it, 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 fruit butter and the recipe.

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