The Rochester Museum & Science Center is hosting a food preservation workshop.
At Preserving the Goodness: Introduction to Food Preservation Techniques, participants can explore various ways to preserve food, including dehydrating, steam juicing, vacuum sealing, freezing, canning and fermenting.
Come transform fruit into juice with a steam juicer or into snacks with the dehydrator. Or add salt to cabbage to ferment into sauerkraut. You can protect dry goods like flour and rice using a vacuum sealer.
The benefits of food preservation are endless. From lowering your grocery bill, increasing your control of what’s in your food and reducing waste by using reusable containers, preserving your food is a great way to be environmentally conscious.
No experience necessary to attend this workshop. 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
This weekend is also Camp After Dark at RMSC. Adults 21 and older are invited to relive their summer camp days with nostalgic activities like a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament, pickup games of volleyball, crafting a boondoggle, sing campfire songs, tie-dye your own shirt, stargaze at the top of the Strasenburgh Planetarium and sample the spirits of TommyRotter Distillery.
There will also be food trucks and cash bars for campers to enjoy. 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday. rmsc.org
