A series of hands-on food preservation workshops are being offered through the UMaine Cooperative Extension, with several of them hosted by the Kittery and Marshwood (South Berwick) Adult Education programs. The upcoming 3-class series on Preserving Homemade Condiments begins on Monday, February 25th. We’ll be making an herbed mustard, cranberry ketchup, and beet relish — if interested, there are still some spots!

Making your own ketchup, mustard, and relish is fun and affordable, plus you control the ingredients and flavor. Use local and seasonal ingredients to make cranberry ketchup, beet relish, and herbed mustards. Learn how to prepare and safely preserve condiments using the hot water bath canning method. Participants will receive recipes and a jar of each product. Please bring a potholder with you to class.
