Start learning how to make jam from home!
Learn how to make homemade sweet spreads, and make enough jars for holiday gifting! In this hands-on class, we will make several batches of jam and decorate them for holiday gifting. You will learn the basics of home preservation, including how to safely use the water bath canning process to preserve your jars so that they can be safely shipped, wrapped & gifted--no refrigeration required.
Each student will leave with at least 4 jars of preserves made in class (Apricot Habanero Jelly, Plum Cardamom Jam, or Pear-Ginger-Lime Preserves are just a few of the options we may explore). We will also spend time decorating jars so that by the time you leave class, they are ready to go under the tree!
