Home Preserving & Canning Lesson


25 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Jan 25, 2018

I have a well-loved home preserving library. Tell me what vegetable or fruit you want to learn to preserve, and I will share a favourite recipe with you and walk you through any terms or processes you are unfamiliar with. I can also share my expert opinion on any canning recipe you find online (or from your grandma's recipe box) for safety and trustworthiness in a modern canning kitchen. I will help you get your kitchen ready for canning by reviewing the essential equipment you need to get started or try something new. Canning isn't scary at all! You got this!

Training & Qualifications

Qualifications: A skilled facilitator and coach with 7 years experience hot water bath and pressure cooking at home, an Ontario food safety certificate, 8 hands-on home custom designed preserving workshops for farms, not for profits, and the canning collective Summer Squirrel, and 10 years working on an organic CSA farm, I'm basically your enthusiastic friend who is inviting you over to make chocolate raspberry jam, dilly beans, peanut sauce, and peaches in a light honey syrup.

Availability & Preferences

I'm usually free in the afternoon, Ontario time

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Barb Applepieski

I get so much energy from meeting new people - I love hearing people's stories! I believe in honesty, authenticity, self-compassion, and trust. My favourite communities are those that innovate, improv...ise, think critically, think deeply, and care about the well being of the whole. I have a lot to offer but I'm starting slow because it's all pretty new to me. I've taught and/or worked professionally using DIY skills like bread baking, installing composting toilets, plumbing, stormwater management (Low Impact Development), gardening, making deodorant, using Diva Cups, starting a business, screenprinting, facilitating, arts education, bike repair, pet waste composting, canning, cooking for groups, and more. I know a fair amount about marketing, blog writing, accounting/excel, wordpress, illustration, creative coaching, and strategic planning but am always open to learning more. I want to know how to use Illustrator for a book project and portfolio design. I need help with photo editing, copy editing, file organizing, and building flow charts for client interactions. The biggest thing I need right now is help setting up Mailchimp drip campaigns for new subscribers. I'm mystified. Get in touch if you can offer these things and I'll be so grateful to learn from you or witness your skills at work. If you want support I can likely dream up a way to support you! show more
