The class is through the University of WI extension service and I'll need to commit to commuity service hours teaching people about food preservation (oh, darn). Today I got my first packet from them that includes booklets on various preservation topics. Next comes the pre-test! I don't know if I've ever been so excited to see a test.
Then in August a co-worker and I will be co-teaching a 2 day canning workshop that includes classes and a community canning kitchen, much like ladies did up until the 1950s to share resources and friendships while preserving their harvest. It's going to totally rock. Bring your aprons!
AND on July 28th my co-op, Mississippi Market, is bringing in Sandor Elix Katz (author of Wild Fermentation and The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved) for a fermentation class. He'll prepare kimchi, yogurt or kefir, and beet kvass and autograph your books. Hooray!
I can barely contain myself.
