Fruits and veggies are best eaten when in season and canning allows you to capture the wonderful flavors of summer to enjoy year-round.  In this class, we’ll focus on pickling and canning techniques while zero-ing in on Zone 7 harvest like crisp cucumbers and juicy tomatoes growing in our Kitchen Garden. After the lesson, we’ll enjoy a delicious meal inspired by our summer harvest. You’ll also take a Ball Mason Jar of what we pickle that you can open up in chill winter months and savor the summer!
