Nicollet Ace Hardware is bringing their Canning Master to the Market this Sunday to show you all how it is done! Come meet Mary Woell and watched some cukes get canned. Still wondering if you can really do that all by yourself? Talk to Mary about registering for one, or all four, of the Fresh Food Preservation Classes, happening this fall at MLK Park, or register at the links below.
Two classes of the September Thursday evening classes are taught by Mary who is a personal chef, culinary teacher and demonstrator, and a master preserver through the U of MN Extension Service: Canning with Confidence and Fun with Fermentation. The other two classes are taught by Kingfield neighbor Marianna Padilla, who has been gardening in the neighborhood for over forty years and teaching organic vegetarian cooking for over 30: Preserving Your Garden: Freezing and Preserving your Garden: Dehydrating.
You can also take advantage of the entire series of preservation classes at one low discounted price. Preserving your garden utilizing both freezing and dehydrating methods to maximize freshness throughout the year. Canning with Confidence will give you a basic introduction and take it a step further using fermentation to can sauerkraut for years of enjoyment. Our Gardening Masters will show you hands-on methods they have developed over a lifetime of working in their backyard gardens! Register for the series of 4 classes here:https://apm.activecommunities.com/minneapolisparks/Activity_Search/41600
The Garden Preservation Program is a partnership between KFNA and MLK Park.
A groovy new ice-cream flavor created for KFNA by Kingfield’s very own Sebastian Joe’s to celebrate National Night Out, Nicollet Open Streets, and Kingfield! Open Streets Cycle-delic is a fresh mango ice cream with a swirl of pure salted raspberry puree partnered with chocolate chunks that creates a kaleidoscopic experience for your mouth that is truly outta sight!
Be sure to greet your KFNA Board Members, who will be biking the new flavor out to all 57 registered Kingfield block parties on Tuesday August 5! And get pumped up for Nicollet Open Streets on September 14 too (both bike tires and attitude-wise!) as that day the party will be rolling along for two whole miles of far out fun through Kingfield and Lyndale neighborhood!
Are Kingfielders ready for NNO tomorrow and the announcement of the 2014 ice cream flavor mixed up by Sebastian Joe’s and scooped by your awesome volunteer neighborhood KFNA Board members at each registered party? Here is a sneak peak…stay tuned for the far-out flavor announcement on Tuesday!
