Passata making workshop

Part of the Huon Valley Food Hub Harvest Program 2023

Bring along your big pots, home grown tomatoes, moules and sieves for an afternoon of proper messy fun as Bepe Persico teaches us a traditional method of passata making.

There’s plenty of space for the kids to play, because we’re doing the workshop on the verandah at Franklin primary.

All money raised from the donations for booking go towards the Franklin Primary Seed Garden.

If you want to bring some of your tomatoes along but aren’t sure you’ll have any, or any volume of them, you can score the base of the tomato with an x and then freeze them. This method makes it really easy to skin the tomato when you plunge it into boiling water. Freezing tomatoes is a good method for storing them up for passata making.

And if you don’t have any tomatoes – no worries, we’ll have plenty to spare – we’re doing a bulk purchase from local growers, so come along anyway!

This event includes a pot luck lunch – bring along a plate to share, cutlery, crockery and mug).

Every attendee goes home with a bottle of passata.
