Strawberry jam, pickles, and salsa — all of these foods can be made from scratch with fruits and vegetables grown in your own garden. Join UMaine Extension staff and volunteers in this hands-on, interactive program that will teach participants how to grow and preserve the garden’s harvest. Each session will begin in the Tidewater Gardens as we harvest the fruits and vegetables needed to make jam, pickles, salsa, and more. Then we’ll move to the kitchen and prepare a batch of delicious preserved foods. Each participant will take home a jar of what we make.
Location: UMaine Extension Regional Learning Center and UMaine Gardens at Tidewater Farm.
This event occurs on Wednesdays starting July 11and ending Aug. 8.
