Cranberry Burst! How To Preserve Fresh Cranberries

The Holiday Season is here! Cranberries are just coming in from the coast and it's a great time to stock up for festive spreads & holiday gift giving. Buying cranberries fresh and putting them up is the smartest way to eat fresh and local winter fruits all year long. Save money & eat like a king by applying the skills learned in this informative class where we will preserve cranberries two ways. We will make:

Toasted Pecan & Cranberry Relish from my new book, Fresh Pantry
Cranberry Maraschino (for your holiday cocktails!)

My classes are designed for both a beginner and advancing preservationist. We will break down recipes bit by bit (so all students can go home and experiment) and you will learn about the science behind food preservation while simultaneously introducing creative and thoughtful ways to move your canning products to the next level. You will leave well-informed!

I'm HOSTING Amerpsand, Live

Forterra creates prosperous, vibrant communities and conserves natural and working landscapes in Washington's central Cascades and Olympic regions.

I am PROUD to host an event to celebrate Forterra's Ampersand Magazine - LIVE from page to stage for a fast-moving, unrehearsed live event celebrating people & place. Somewhat edgy. Somewhat nerdy. Always engaging.

Featuring regional thinkers & doers, including Seattle rapper Prometheus Brown (Blue Scholars, The Bar), TEAGUE's award-winning bike designer Roger Jackson, Chef Daisley Gordon of Café Campagne, internationally acclaimed nature photographer Paul Bannick and public radio storytellers BirdNote.
