Join Caroline Craig for a lecture and demonstration on canning and preserving. Learn about traditional preservation methods, look at the equipment used, and see some of the produce of Bert and Nina Fletcher Little’s farm. Caroline worked for the Little family for twenty years and one summer put up more than eight hundred jars of jams, jellies, and preserves. She shares the family’s favorite seasonal recipes for preserving tomatoes and cooking. Samples will be available for tasting.
