Learn to Can

327.jpgJoin Slow Food Chicago at the Logan Square Kitchen tomorrow, Nov. 15 from 6pm to 8:30pm for an apple canning workshop. The second installment of SFC's canning workshop series will teach you to prepare a curry apple chutney made from Earth First Farm organic apples. (You'll be going home with two cans full of your chutney creations - yum!) Learn to make something you can enjoy next week at the Thanksgiving table, or save it for a bright spot on an upcoming dark day of winter. The workshop will be lead by Liz David and Zvi Bar-Chaim of Scratch Homemade, who will walk you through the basics of a variety of home canning projects. Logan Square Kitchen is located at 2333 N. Milwaukee Ave. All ingredients provided by Logan Square Kitchen. Canning workshop is $40 per person ($30 for Slow Food members). Tickets can be purchased here, or email for more information.
