Canning Demo Series - Fresh Salsa

  • Downtown Market 233 North Broadway Aurora, IL, 60505 United States (map)

When you taste this fresh salsa, you'll want to make it an annual tradition. Tomatoes, peppers, onions, and cilantro combine to preserve the fresh taste of summer all year long.


Come discover the easy and fun art of preserving the bounty of delicious fresh, local fruits and vegetables available at the Downtown Market. On select Saturday mornings, University of Illinois Extension Nutrition & Wellness Educator, Laura Barr, will present a canning and demonstration. Laura will showcase how you too, “can” easily turn those luscious berries into jam, vine ripened heirloom tomatoes into a zesty salsa, preserve cucumbers into savory pickles and much more. You’ll learn how to put summer in jar and preserve the seasonal abundance of flavorful fruits and vegetables that your family and friends “can” enjoy all year long! Each information packed demonstration will include small batch recipes, equipment list, tastings and other surprises. Discover You Can, Learn, Make, and Share at Aurora’s Farmers Market!
