We are so lucky here in California where we have access to the most AMAZING fruit! Catch the end of the summer fruit season as pears, plums, and other late summer fruits finish up their season, and learn how to make fabulous low sugar jams with local, organic fruit. In this workshop Jordan will cover all you need to know to make delicious jams and the keys to preserving food safely. Learn Jordan’s secret techniques for making low sugar jam that is packed with fresh fruit and flavor. She will cover the topics of hot water bath canning, the PH scale, and food safety. Students will get hands on experience with some of the Bay Area's very best produce, and learn techniques for making great preserves at home.
Students will work with local organic fruit that is in season, learn how to add spices, herbs and citrus to your jams to create your own unique recipes, and learn how to preserve fruit in honey in a compote. Students will go home with three jars of goodies and a lot of new canning knowledge.
No experience necessary, all materials provided in class. Students must wear closed toed shoes and long pants, and may bring their favorite apron.
