If, like me, you're overrun with late-season veggies from the garden, you might need to get the 411 on canning and preserving them. Sherri Brooks Vinton, author of Put 'em Up, is here to help. --- The Downtown Farmers Market and Edible Wasatch magazine welcome canning and food-preservation expert Sherri Brooks Vinton for three days of canning events this weekend, just in time to catch the last of the summer harvest.
The event schedule is at follows:
Sat., 10/8 (10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon): Downtown Farmers Market – “Pickling 101." Sherri will demonstrate a pickling recipe in three sessions, at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and noon. Participation is free.
Sun. 10/9 (7-9 p.m.): The Garage on Beck Street – “Jar Swap and Book Signing." Mingle with fellow canners and sip a custom cocktail from High West Distillery designed especially for the event. Bring a jar of your own to swap and receive a discount on dinner. This event is free and open to the public 21 and older.
