Preserving hedgerow berries has been a household occupation for hundreds – if not thousands of years! On this course we show you the different berries to be found, which ones are particularly good to preserve and how to do it. We will make a range of preserves, some using a mixture of hedgerow berries, some using just one fruit. There are lots of different ways to preserve – in alcohol, – as wild berry liqueurs, as traditionally boiled Jellies, jams and chutneys, savoury ketchups, fruit vinegars, sauces and cordials.
The day is held in our private wood and involves short walks and talks, demonstrations and hands on experience making preserves. Together we will be making liqueurs, jellies, sauces and a cordial for you to take home. There will be other preserves for you to try and liqueurs and seasonal drinks for you to taste.
The course runs from 9.30am – 4.00pm. There will be hot drinks and biscuits supplied and a light lunch. Places are limited to 10.
