The Whallonsburg Grange will host a series of Harvest Parties for the public to preserve produce from their gardens and CSA shares at the Grange Community Kitchen. The series will run on Saturdays, every two weeks throughout the growing season. The cost is $5.00 per person for each event.

On Saturday, July 11, from 9:30 to noon, the series will open with an “Introduction to Processing at the Grange Kitchen,” led by the Grange kitchen committee. Participants will learn how to use all of the Grange’s tools to put up the harvest, including the flash freezer for better flavor and texture in freezing vegetables and fruits, and the steam kettle for making large batches of sauce. All are welcome to bring greens, shelling peas, and other garden produce to process at this event.

The series is generously funded by grants and gifts from the Essex Community Fund, the Adirondack Foundation’s Generous Acts Fund, and the Essex County Adirondack Garden Club. The organizations also sponsored the purchase of tools for processing fruits and vegetables, and canning equipment.
