Making Slovenian Canned Peppers

Monday, September 4, 2017 September 4, 2017 Grand Ely Lodge

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Slovenes have always eaten home canned peppers that were canned using oil and vinegar.  These peppers were used as condiments, appetizers, or a salad substitute.  Learn how to home can these delicious vegetables using a recipe right from Slovenia!  We will discuss safety measures when canning, prepare the peppers (Gypsy or Hungarian which are mild, not hot), make the brine, pack the peppers and process them in a hot water bath to insure the lids are sealed and sterilized.  You will take home at least one quart of home canned peppers and recipe to make again.
Mary Louise is an Ely native & retired teacher who loves to share her passion for traditional skills & has also teaches our Slovenian Potica, Apple Strudel, Pasty and Pine Needle Basketry classes.
