Are you interested in preparing and canning your own fish? When done yourself with fresh fish, you will be able to taste the magnificent difference from a commercial, store-bought can of fish. Plus, the variety that you can prepare yourself will be much broader than the choices in the store. This is your chance to learn and prepare yourself and take home 2 jars of canned fish. Be one of 15 participants to join this first-time class offered by Paepae ‘O Heeia for Slow Food O’ahu.
Participants will:
  • Observe how to cut and prepare a large fish
  • Participate in smoking of fish
  • Each can 2 quart jars of fish which they will be able to take home ($30 value)
  • Taste fish that has been canned in same method
  • Enjoy a brief tour and history of the fish pond
  • Participate in a pot luck lunch
We will supply the following items: * quart size jars * large fish * organic oil * organic carrots * organic onions * sourdough bread
Participants need to bring a pot luck lunch item – after we prepare the jars, they need to cook in pressure cooker for 90 minutes.  We will take a tour of look `ia and have lunch while they are cooking. Participants must also bring something to take home hot jars in.  Participants can take home their two jars that day.  They will still be very hot so need to have something to take it home.
Note: We could also use help in securing some outside burners, cutting boards, and knives. Let us know if you can assist with this effort.
