About a week and a half ago, I mentioned that I’m headed out to Seattle for the Canning Across America weekend on August 29th and 30th. One of the reasons I’m going out there is to teach a canning class at Starry Nights Catering and Events on the 30th. I’ve been really excited about this class, but right now, it looks like it may not happen as there’s only one person signed up for this class.
In order for this class to go forward, I need more people to sign up for this class. I’ve set up an event registration page at Brown Paper Tickets to make it easy for folks to sign up (tickets are now available for purchase online! except that it’s not yet live, feel free to leave a comment if you want to sign up and I’ll follow up with you). I would so love and appreciate it if you could all help me spread the word (many thanks to Shauna who included my class in her preserving post last week). Tell your Seattle-area friends and family to come and spend an afternoon learning about canning with me! All the details are after the jump.
Canning Basics with Marisa McClellan: Fruit Jam (in Seattle)
Sunday, August 30, 2009
2:00 to 3:30 PM
Learn just how easy it can be to make and can a batch of jam from scratch. If you’ve never done any canning because you think it’s too complicated, this class will change your mind and your pantry forever. Each student will head home with the knowledge they need to make their own jam (as well as a small jar of the jam made in class that day).
Marisa is a food writer and cooking instructor from Philadelphia, PA who is coming to the Seattle-area to participate in the Canning Across America weekend. To sign up, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
