Celeste Longacre has been growing and preserving many of her family’s vegetables for over forty years. She does a lot of teaching about gardening, preserving the harvest and fermenting. She is the author of the book, Celeste’s Garden Delights: Discover the Many Ways a Garden Can Nurture You.
PRESERVING THE FRUITS OF YOUR GARDEN THROUGH FERMENTATION AND OTHER MEANS
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 22
Come join Celeste Longacre for a visual display of how to store and keep your garden veggies through fermentation, canning and freezing. Celeste will begin by fermenting fruit kvass, beet kvass, mayonnaise, ketchup, fancy sauerkraut and bread and butter pickles. She will then show the basics of getting fruits and vegetables into the freezer and how to make and can spaghetti sauce. Food is a big part of self-sufficiency and knowing how to provide for ourselves and our families eases stress and creates self confidence. Gain confidence and know-how so you can go home with new knowledge and sustainable skills. Limited samples may also be available.
