"Preserving the Harvest"-6pm on September 17thIn my post up today at Localbeet.com, I show that local food remains accessible and affordable in the Chicago area. The best way to capitalize on this is by buying heavily now and putting much away for the times when local will not be as easy to come by.
Eating locally is easy in August. But when Chicago's cold winds begin to blow in October, does being a locavore relegate one to a diet of potatoes? A little foresight and effort during the harvest will bring some sunshine to those cold winter days. In this class, you'll learn the basics of food preservation, including freezing, drying, pickling and jamming. As a take-away, you'll receive a recipe booklet with additional resources on this subject. Presented by Melissa Graham, owner of Monogramme Events, founder of Purple Asparagus and membership chair for Green City Market. Class will be held at Green Grocer Chicago, 1402 W. Grand Ave.
