PRESERVATION FALL


The art of preserving and fermenting food is not a new trend, but more people are doing it again as a way to eat well, save money, create flavorful gifts, and extend the natural seasonal variety of local foods. Luckily, San Diego happens to be one of those unique and magic places where pretty much everything grows all the time; however there are subtle seasons, and their presence avails none the less. We are charged with the responsibility and the pleasure of doing our best to enjoy the "fruits of our labors" year round. Can you imagine not having any strawberry jam for your toast on those chilly winter mornings? Or forgoing the sweet tang of tomatoes for nine long months?

Whether you are an experienced jam maker, a novice at hosting pickle parties, or a professional sauce sifter, "Preservation Fall" is an event you do not want to miss. On Saturday, October 22nd, the Little Italy Mercato is celebrating the fall harvest season in full colors.

Join Mark Stogsdill, owner of Happy Pantry; Jen Barthell from the Neighborhood Foodie; and Austin Durant from The Fermenters Club for fermentation and preservation demonstrations at the Amici Park amphitheater in the heart of the Mercato. From 9:30-12:30pm, participants to the free event will learn canning basics and will be able to buy canning products to preserve at home, along with an assortment of pickled treats, jams, sauces and veggies to eat or give as gifts.
