On Saturday, Slow Food Chicago Board Member, Kim Werst led a canning workshop at Kendall College. Participants learned about pickling, preserving, and even took home blueberry preserves they made themselves. Couldn't make it? Relive it via the photos below. Or get to it in your own kitchen with some of our favorite recipes. And don't forget to reference our favs, Pomona's Pectin for extra tips and tricks of the trade. There's truly nothing better than a fruity preserve to remind you of summer in the midst of a midwestern winter.
****Please note - the linked recipes incorrectly state the use of "2 tbsp" of Pomona's Pectin. This should be adjusted to 2 tsp (as per the Pectin package instructions).****
