Fowlers Preserving Method Workshop

Workshop Cancelled

Using the Fowlers Vacola Preserving system Marieka, Sheralee and Maggie will show you how to take the seasonal harvest and preserve it safely to create a shelf-stable product that will last you well into the lean months of winter.

We are thrilled to be partnering with the Angaston Show again in 2024 to bring you a personalised hands-on preserving workshop hosted in the Angaston Football Club rooms. Immerse yourself in the buzz and activity of show day and take home something much more valuable than a plastic show bag!

Fowlers preserving is a traditional food skill developed more than 100 years ago that allowed families all over the country to take their summer and autumn produce and put it away for the lean months of winter. This skill is cheap, it’s easy, it requires limited equipment and it is enormously satisfying. Consequently it is still an enduring food story, as valid now as 100 yeas ago. Forget the images of your grandmother slaving over boiling pots of water for hours on end – this process is now very quick, very easy, and incredibly practical (and there is no boiling water required). It ticks so many boxes in terms of sustainability, nutrition, frugality, resourcefulness and cost savings…and did we mention its fun?

If you would like to learn how to create a sustainable pantry that utilises your seasonal excess in a safe and shelf stable manner, then we would love to have you join us on in the Footy Clubrooms as we step you through what you need, how to do it, and how to get great results. As experienced preservers Marieka and Sheralee will teach you what you need and how to do it and to provide tips and tricks about how to use your bottled produce to form the foundation of your everyday cooking. The format is very relaxed and there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions or seek guidance. Please see the FAQ section below for details regarding workshop format and run times.

You will take home a jar of fruit, an instruction booklet, and a valuable new skill in your kitchen repertoire. Children under the age of 12 are welcome to purchase tickets, but they must have some proficiency with using a small sharp knife and will need a guardian to attend with them. Please contact us if you have any specific access requirements or if you will require seating during the workshop. We will happily do everything we can to help.

*PLEASE NOTE: Workshop ticket purchase does not provide entry to the show grounds. Please support our local Angaston Show by purchasing your show entry ticket at the gate on the day.

What do you get:

  • A personalised workshop with expert guidance from Marieka and Sheralee
  • A shelf stable jar of fruit that you prepared, to take home.
  • A fully printed workbook with instructions and recipes, perfect for recording your own notes or to refer back to at any time.
  • An opportunity to ask us direct questions specific to your particular preserving needs or situation.
  • Links to a supportive and enthusiastic Facebook group that can provide ongoing advice and inspiration.
  • A whole new perspective and passion for seasonal produce.

How it will work:

  • The Workshop will be hosted in a maximum group size of twenty and will last for approximately 45 minutes.
  • We will talk you through how the process works and how to source your equipment.
  • We will outline some simple food safety rules you will need to follow.
  • You will pack and prepare jars before they are processed.
  • You are free to stay and chat while jars are processing, or you may choose to return when the time is up to collect your jar (1hour).
