Greenfield Winter Fare is coming right up, this Saturday Feb. 4! I'll be giving a workshop at 10:30:
10:30 am to 11:15 am, Room 82:
Freezing & Drying Summer’s Bounty for Winter Eating
Workshop leader: Meggin Thwing Eastman,
Come learn easy techniques to preserve the summer and fall harvest with a home dehydrator and chest freezer.Many fruits and vegetables can be dried or frozen with minimal advance preparation. Snack on home-dried peaches and apples all winter and top pizza with your own dried tomatoes. Freeze corn, peppers, berries, green beans, tomatoes, and other veggies, and enjoy their burst of nearly-fresh flavor in your cooking all through the cold months.
And I'll be shopping! Here's what on my list so far:
- sweet potatoes
- salad greens
- cooking greens
- hard red wheat
There will be lots more than that on offer, though, so I'm sure we'll leave with more than just these items.
