Traditional Canning

Who has the time for traditional canning, the way Granny did it? We do! At Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen we follow the time-honoured steps that bring you delicious local canning from the farm to your table. Come and watch us at working during the late summer and into the autumn at our kitchen in The Forks Market as we bring you summer in a jar through this prairie custom. Our delicious choices include, but are not limited to:

  • Apple and wild cranberry jam
  • Manitoba Saskatoon jam
  • Apricot sunrise jam
  • Homestyle apple sauce
  • Rhubarb apple chutney
  • Salsas (mild, medium, or hot)
  • Homestyle dill pickles
  • Bread and butter pickles
  • Pickled beets
  • and much, much more!

At Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen, we are preserving more than food. We are preserving a heritage. A selection of our canned items is also available at Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company in Wolseley, 859 Westminster Avenue, and Tall Grass in The Forks Market.
