Event Description

This Masterclass is part of Made In Hackney's 'VIP Series', working with experts who are renowned in their field.

“Preserving is all about capturing seasonal moments, embracing glorious gluts and ensuring nothing you grow or buy goes to waste. I’ll show you how to turn your precious produce into healthy, sugar-free jams, chutneys, pickles, home-grown tisanes and tonics, gut-friendly ferments and more.”

Rachel de Thample
Made In Hackney Ambassador, Author, Chef, Forager & Preserver

The class will include:

  • The know-how for making jam with sugar alternatives

  • A look at drying, the oldest and most energy-efficient way of preserving

  • Bottling as a low-sugar way of preserving summer berries and tomatoes, including learning to make your own ‘tinned’ tomatoes

  • Infusing herb, fruit and shrub vinegars

  • Fermentation and the use of salt to preserve food, and how to make kimchi and sauerkraut

  • Different methods of pickling and a quick pickle to take home

  • How to sterilise jars and store your preserves

  • A delicious organic plant based lunch featuring summer preserves and recipes to keep
