Produce is sourced from local farms whenever possible.

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.

Preservation Make & Take parties are a fun way to combine a celebration 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, hand outs, and supplies are included in the course fee. I am also happy to incorporate student-provided decorations, theme materials, etc..
