Capturing the Harvest, the Print Version

If you can't make my Green Grocer class, you can still learn a little about pickling in Summer Captured, which features my recipe for Spicy Pickles.

UPDATE: Some of you may have seen that I co-wrote an article on this topic with Rob Gardner that appeared on The Local Beet.

Capturing the Harvest at Green Grocer Chicago

Next Wednesday, September 17, I'll be teaching a class on food preservation called Capturing the Harvest:

Eating locally is easy in August. But when Chicago's cold winds begin to blow in October, does being a locavore relegate one to a diet of potatoes? A little foresight and effort during the harvest will bring some sunshine to those cold Winter days. In this class, you'll learn the basics of food preservation, including freezing, drying, pickling and jamming. As a take-away, you'll receive a recipe booklet with additional resources on this subject.
