Winter Preserving: Sunny Citrus
Food & Drink
Looking to expand your jam-making skills beyond summer strawberries? Winter is a great time to try new preserves thanks the abundance and variety of citrus fruit you can find at the market, from ruby-red blood oranges to tiny, tart kumquats! In addition to jam, we’ll also talk about preserving with salt to make preserved lemons, a pantry staple in Middle Eastern cuisine.
This class is perfect for canning novices and veterans alike. Instructor Emily Paster will discuss the basics of water-bath canning, including safety and storage, plus ways to customize your preserves. You’ll leave with the knowledge and confidence to try canning at home.
Attendees will make and take home their own jars of orange jam and salt-preserved lemons.

Learning together in the garden, and kitchen, does much more than put fresh, nutritious food on the table. It helps build stronger communities, connect us to cultural heritage, improve public health and create a more sustainable, resilient city. Peterson Garden Project is a not-for-profit organization, and we're looking to inspire everyone we meet to grow and cook their own food and build community. If you love the taste of a homegrown tomato, are curious about growing food yourself, or are looking for a place to learn basic home cooking skills and make new friends over delicious food— then we're looking for you!
