November 29th Canning Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Learn to preserve the harvest with expert canners James and Heather!

James Partanen and Heather Kilner, both expert canners with many years of experience, will be leading you through a delicious recipe and an in-depth discussion about canning and preserving. This will be a great way to learn new skills or brush up old ones.

We will be canning delicious pear mincemeat using pears Photo by Robin Newman from one of our local farmers.

You will learn about the theory and practice of preserving, gain hands-on experience using a hot water bath canner, and leave with some jars of delicious preserves.

The workshop will be held in the kitchen of the Parkdale Neighbourhood Church, at 201 Cowan Avenue (steps south of Queen Street, between Dufferin and Lansdowne). 

The workshop will run from 6:00-9:00 with  registration starting at 5:45. The total cost for the workshop is $45 for West End Food Co-op members or $50 for non-members (which includes the cost of a lifetime membership). Payment can be made in person at the workshop.
