Before you know it, we'll be in 2020. Let’s keep the holiday cheer going! Have you started to wonder what you will be doing with all those citrus fruits that are hanging like jewels from your trees?

On February 11, 2020 (yes, it's just around the corner) the UCCE Master Food Preservers of Orange County will share ideas on what to do with these gems. We will be making Lemon Curd for the freezer, and steam canning Honey Orange slices. Additionally, you will receive information on making candied fruit peels.

There will be 2 identical workshops offered. Each class is limited to the first 24 registrants. Register and pay online by February 10th, 2020, and bring a printed or digital copy of your confirmation proof-of-payment email to class. Closed-toe shoes are recommended. Loaner aprons are available, or bring yours from home.

Cancellation Policy: No refunds one week prior to workshop, as materials will have been purchased.

After completing the first part of this sign-up, you will be sent to the payment page. Please complete both sections in order to actually be added to the class list.

Directions to South Coast REC


South Coast Research and Extension Center

The city of Irvine has removed the left turn pocket in front of the property so if you are coming from the west you must drive to the light at Modjeska and make a U-turn. When you are approaching the property you will see chain link fence and then a block wall fence. The entrance is just at the end of the block wall – see attached photo.

Please note that this is a recent change and using directions on a mobile device will not alert you to these changes.
