It's green tomato time! Time for all those not-yet-ripe tomatoes to come off the vines and indoors before they wither in the frost. When faced with a large quantity of unripe green tomatoes, pickled green tomatoes is a delicious alternative to Fried Green Tomatoes - one that you can enjoy all winter long!
This hands-on class is designed for the novice canner as well as the seasoned pickler in need of a refresher. We will go over the basics of pickling science and boiling-water-bath canning, including information on food safety, and recommendations on how to store your newly canned goods. Each participant gets to take home a jar of Curried Green Tomato pickles that they've made during the class.
