November 30th - HOLIDAY GIFTS! Delectable fruits preserved! in Pacific Grove 5-8pm
Join Happy Girl Kitchen as we embark on creating yummy Holiday Gifts! We will cover the basics of food safety so that you can be sure your holiday gifts will be delicious AND safe! Making gifts around the holidays is great so that you always have a unique gift of love ready for friends, coworkers, teachers and anyone else who suprises you this time of year.
Hot water bath canning will be covered and you will go home with 3 sealed jars from the class. Learn how to experiment with recipes and add your own personal touch to preserves. This workshop will be taught by Jordan Champagne who is an expert on many techniques of putting up food and is happy to answer all of your questions. We are happy to share our secrets unearthed after perfecting these arts for over a decade.
We will candy citrus peels, make a knock-out cranberry sauce and honeyed oranges. With the candied citrus peels I will show you how to dip them in chocolate and package them and I will show you how to mix them in bliss balls and package those. The honeyed oranges are just GORGEOUS in the jars with star anise and cinnamon and smell just like the holidays! We will also explore the world of cordials together and make some delicious drinks that you can serve for the holidays!
Bring a friend or a family member and enjoy the season together! The class also includes a light dinner to start off with a full tasting.
