Event Announcement: Blenheim Apricots in Santa Barbara

Laurence Hauben, the leader of Slow Food Santa Barbara, has extended an invitation to Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends to attend a “market foray” focused on Blenheim apricots.

When: Wednesday, June 20, 2007 from 9:30am until 3:00pm
Where: in and around Santa Barbara; details available upon request (see below)
Cost: $50 per person; $25 for children under 12 accompanied by an adult

The day’s events will include apricot picking (up to 2lbs per person) at a local orchard that is one of the few to produce Blenheims, a picnic lunch in the orchard, jam-making instruction in a private home, a printed recipe for your future jam-making efforts, and a jar of jam to take home.
