About Lxs Cuir in the Kitchen Workshop:
How do you organize Queer/Trans solidarity work that becomes more than just short-term relief after a crisis? Learn about the history of food preservation contextualized through resistance and survival, and how Cuir Kitchen Brigade organized a food solidarity project to support Borikén after hurricane Maria. Come learn how to pickle and ferment through our hands-on workshop and how to start a group like #cuirkitchenbrigade to support places on the front lines of climate and political injustice.
Sterilizing jars instructions:
To sterilize jars for canning, preheat your oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your jars and lids in a roasting pan and slide them into the oven for at least 20 minutes.
