I attended an event hosted by Food Forward this past weekend held in Hollywood at the Farmer's Kitchen. It was an amazing class all about canning those delicious summer tomatoes. The women in attendance were shown how to prepare, cook and can summer's most revered fruit in local kitchen. The Farmer's Kitchen is a local business that is dedicated to providing locals (and tourists alike) foods prepared with local, all natural ingredients and lots of love. I encourage you all to check it out. (I had my eye on the Peach Salsa! Yum.)
It was a fun filled day of good food, hard work and lots learning. Chef Evan Kleiman of Good Food taught us how to make a real Italian tomato sauce. Master Food Preserver, Delilah Snell of Backyard in a Jar taught the group how to make Tomato Jam. Fun fun fun.
I hope this inspires you to create magic in your own kitchen!
