After all the valuable and useful information you learned in Farm City, we though an equally thought provoking demonstration was necessary. The main theme of Farm City is using what you have in a sustainable way. This is why we thought a demo on canning would be perfect. Not only does canning give us thousands and thousands of ideas/recipes, it is also something you can easily do at home with fruit or vegetables from your garden.
In addition to the lesson on canning, Doug will be making hot pepper jelly. The hot pepper jelly is something Doug swears by, "both sweet and spicy" he says. Hot pepper jelly goes wonderful with a cracker and goat cheese, but we are going to take it up a notch and serve it with pork tacos.
No need to eat dinner tonight!
