In Home Classes

I offer three types of in-home classes – Basic Classes, Advanced Classes (on hold for summer 2018) and Preservation Make & Take Parties. Please see below for class descriptions.

I am now taking bookings for May, June, and July 2018 for in home classes. Please email me at amanda@preservationschool.com to reserve your class! 

Basic Classes

$30.00 per student (up to 4 students)

Taught in the student’s home kitchen, these classes are for beginners and are designed for no more than 4 students, in order to maximize hands-on, personalized instruction. For larger groups, please see the Preservation Make & Take Party listed below. Instruction, produce, hand outs, and supplies are included in the course fee. Produce is sourced from local farms and the Woodstock Farmer’s Market.

Preserving Fruit Basics

Learn how to make jam in this hands-on two-hour class. We will review how to prepare the fruit, cook the jam in order to get a perfect set, and then water bath can it in order to make it shelf stable. We’ll also review how to trouble shoot problems (such as runny jam or unsealed jars), how to store the jam and recipe ideas for using it in cooking.

Pickle Basics

Learn how to make pickles in this hands-on two-hour class. We will review how to prepare the vegetables, create a brine, and then water bath can it in order to make it shelf stable. We’ll also review how to trouble shoot problems (such as soft pickles or unsealed jars), how to store the pickles and recipe ideas for using it in cooking.

Blue Ribbon Salsa

Learn how to make my award-winning salsa in this hands-on two-hour class. We will review how to prepare the fruit, cook the tomatoes, and then water bath can it in order to make it shelf stable. We’ll also review how to trouble shoot problems (such as unsealed jars), how to store the tomatoes and recipe ideas for using it in cooking.

 

Preservation Make & Take Party

$200 for 5 – 8 students

Preservation Make & Take parties are a fun and unusual way to combine a celebration in your home with learning a new skill! Taught in the student’s home kitchen, these classes are a combination of demonstrated technique and hands on learning. Instruction, produce, premium hand outs, and supplies are included in the course fee, in addition to a private Facebook event page for your party. I am also happy to incorporate student-provided decorations, theme materials, etc. into the party. Produce is sourced from local farms and the Woodstock Farmer’s Market.

Any of the courses above can be incorporated into a Preservation Make & Take Party, or I can work with you to design a completely custom class to suit your group.

These parties are perfect for –

  • Ladies’ Night In
  • Birthday Parties
  • Bridal Showers
  • Home School Classes
  • Corporate Team Building
  • Garden Club Events
  • Civic Group Activities
  • Just Because!
