Omega Love

I spent last weekend at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, teaching a three-day workshop on local food preservation methods. Ordinarily, this is not a sappy blog, but bear with me. To have the opportunity to share my enthusiasm for canning, freezing, dehydrating, pickling, and fermenting with eager strangers, in a setting as beautiful as the Omega grounds, just about took my breath away. It was transformative. Thanks so much to everyone who participated, for your interest, your insights, and your questions.

And to you loyal blog readers who made it possible for me to have such an opportunity in the first place, I am enormously grateful.

    Thanks, Audra, the weekend was great! You were inspiring ~ and now that strawberries have arrived at my farmer’s market, I can’t wait to put up some preserves (or perhaps a conserve….)

    Are you going to be having another workshop? I missed this one and would love to attend another one if you are going to be teaching again!

    @Julie: I would *love* to do another Omega Workshop, but that is up to Omega, not me. Meanwhile, if you’re near Philadelphia I’m doing a “beets two ways” workshop on 6/26 (pickled and pressure canned), and am considering offering a tomato class in mid-July. E-mail me if you’re interested.

    Hey lady! I was in your last beets class with Colleen Watts (I’m Chili Pepper apron)! Yesterday I got my first brochure from Omega, because I have been dying to get up there for something, anything, since I heard about it, and imagine my surprise when I saw your face in there! That is so great that you had the chance to go up there and teach. It’s definitely on my list of places to visit very soon. I just wanted to say hello and thanks again for the class. 🙂
