Iskashitaa will once again be holding a food preservation class at St. Francis in the Foothills. Volunteers, both from the refugee community and from our broader Tucson community, will come together to process local Iskashitaa-harvested produce into products that will last much longer than the original fresh fruit.
This is an opportunity for refugees to practice English and learn about working in a commercial kitchen, and for other volunteers to connect with the Iskashitaa community.
This time around, we will be making marmalade out of Tucson’t oft-overlooked Seville oranges (a.k.a. sour, bitter, ornamental, or marmalade oranges).
