Summer Cooking School to Teach Garden Preserving and Canning, Plus Cooper's Mill Factory Tour
Did you plant a summer garden and don’t know how to use all the bounty? Always wanted to plant a garden, but just didn’t make the move yet? Either way, at our HideAway Inn cooking school, you can learn what to do with your harvest or what you COULD do with your harvest next year.
Additionally, if you don’t have a garden but don’t want to wait, think of all the wonderful possibilities you could have for the winter from basket full of goodies from a local farmer’s market.
In choosing a two-day cooking course of either August 16 and 17 or 30 and 31, 2014 (please confirm dates of class when you call), you can learn from our passionate Chef Josh and staff in our “Preserving the Bounty” cooking school. There will also be some help from local farm wives in our rural, scenic area to teach you the basics of canning, freezing, and preserving!
Not only will you learn to cook and preserve garden goods so you can eat healthy all winter, you’ll be able to taste the freshness during the class. You can view our Inn’s kitchen garden and how the items are utilized for our guests who dine with us.
There will also be a special tour to Cooper's Mill, which is the local apple butter and jelly factory that’s been in business since 1969. They cook their apple butter in 50-lb. copper kettles over a wood fire and their jams and jellies are cooked in small pots so as to preserve more flavor. They also don’t use any artificial colors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
