Learn how to turn the summer’s tomato bounty into a delicious pantry staple for your cold-weather cooking. Home-canned tomatoes make a perfect base for soups, stews and casseroles (and don’t forget their vital role in the Sunday brunch staple, the Bloody Mary cocktail).
The tomato workshop costs $60 per person, and each workshop participant will get to take home 10 – 12 quart jars of tomatoes.
Space constraints mean the workshop is limited to only twelve participants. Call Kari, the event organizer, at 515-771-5886 to reserve your place at the kitchen table.
See you August 30!
