Preserving Herbs: Sign up for our Summer series

A few people have been asking for more details about the upcoming preserving workshops. Here’s what’s in store for the July 27 Herbal Workshop.

This workshop will be led by local herbalist Oren Hercz.

We’ll start with a short introduction to herbal medicine and why it’s great to preserve herbs and use them all year round. Next, we’ll discuss general preservation of herbs: what can be dried, frozen, etc. and techniques for preserving them in this way.  Oren will show examples of traditional herbal culinary preservation, such as vinegars, honeys, wines and liquors.

And then the hands-on piece: we’ll make a herbal honey and a herbal vinegar. The herbs we end up preserving in the class will depend on what’s ready in the garden at the time of the workshop.

If you’d like to join us for this workshop, or any of our other Wednesday evening workshops, fill out the registration form found here.

And here’s the full summer schedule:

July 27 – Herbs – Herbal Honey & Vinegar

August 3 – Beans – Dilly Beans

August 10 – Zucchini & Cucumber – Pickles

August 17 – Blueberry – Jam

August 24 – Stone Fruits (peaches or plums) – Halved in syrup

We’re very excited about the summer line-up and hope to see you at workshop or two!
