Culinary Historians of Chicago

This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

May God bless whoever invented canning. 
Come join us and learn how canning got its start and changed civilization and the culinary world forever. Our speaker will tell us a tale of preservation heritage and share a number of tips on modern home canning that she offers in her new book, Put ‘em Up! Fruit
Sherri Brooks points out that with an increasing number of people growing their own food, and shopping at farmers’ markets, there’s a growing demand for information on extending the life of seasonal fruits. And she’s ready to teach us city dwellers a thing or two on how easy it is to preserve fruits. (Homemade peach preserves, here I come!) 
Copies of Sherri’s book will be available for purchase and signing, with profits used to fund the Culinary Historians of Chicago.
