People can for environmental reasons, to eat locally, reconnect with family recipes, preserve their garden's abundance, be self-sufficient, save money, or just because it tastes better! If you are motivated to can but aren't sure where to start, this is the class for you.
What's the difference between preserves, compotes, fruit butters, jams & jellies? Should you use a water bath or pressure canner? How do you can safely? This hands-on workshop will answer these questions and more. You will leave with several jars of homemade preserves (apples and quince are the planned ingredients, subject to availability), a sheaf of recipes, and the skills and confidence to do it yourself next time.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. As of this posting, only 5 spots were left. All proceeds benefit OYC.
Jam for the Arts is co-sponsored by Oakland Local.
