Canning season is approaching! I know that there are still many among you who want to tackle your own projects this summer but have apprehensions. The best way to get shake off your fears and get comfortable with the canning process is to take a class and see it done first-hand. If you’re in Philly or surrounds, you can even take a class with me. The following classes will be held at Indy Hall (20 N. 3rd Street, Philadelphia, PA) from 11 am-12:30 pm. Classes cost $45 per person and include instruction, the recipe and a jar of whatever we make in class.
What’s more, there are still four spots in the class I’m teaching tomorrow, if you’re interested in pickling some asparagus (it’s quite tasty!). To sign up for any of these classes, email me at foodinjars AT gmail.com.
Strawberry Rhubarb Jam
Peach Lime Jam
Cucumber Dill Pickles
Spicy Tomato Chutney (this recipe takes a bit longer to cook down, so this class will run until 1 pm)
I’m also doing a series of three canning demonstrations at Linvilla Orchards this summer. These are free and open to the public, so come out and say hi! You can find me there on the following dates…
July 23 for the Sweet Corn and Blackberry Festival
August 6 for the Peach Festival
September 24 & 25 for the Apple Festival
I’m also available for private canning classes. For more information on how to set one up, click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
