This will be a fun hands-on class for those who want to learn how to preserve seasonal food using the hot-bath canning method.  We will cover three basic canning methods, safety and get right to work with the just emerging local spring foods.


This is not your run-of-the-mill canning class!  Students will learn about creating a sustainable pantry by using what is in season and preserving our local organic harvest in several different methods, including a water-bath canning method, a pickling method and preservation in alcohol.

Students will all get a chance to create three different recipes,  try their hand at the canning process and go home with one of each of the three batches, which will likely include a:  local organic strawberry preserve or jam, preserved organic lemons, a seasonal citrus extract and/or dandelion jelly (if it is in season early enough)

A light snack will be served in this 3 1/2-hour class, and all materials are included.



Date: March 7th, 1 – 4:30 pm.

Class Size: Limited to 8

Location: The Human Path Outdoor Campus, San Antonio

Kitchen Cottage Classroom.

Tuition: $45, includes all materials and 3 canned jars of organic local items for students to take home.
