Upcoming Events: Hatboro! Wyebrook Farm! Havertown! Jenkintown!

First sighting of the new book in the wild! It is a rare and unique joy.

I’ve got a full weekend of events in store today, tomorrow, and Sunday (and Monday, too)! Here’s where I’ll be!

Friday, June 6
I’ll be at the Hatboro Farmers Market tonight from 6-8 pm, demoing the Honey-sweetened Strawberry Jam from Preserving by the Pint. The demo will be set up on the front porch of the Hatboro Baptist Church, which is at 32 N. York Road, Hatboro, PA.

I’ll have samples of the jam to share when it’s finished cooking, and will have copies of both books available for sale and signature. And, as always, if you already have copies, bring them along. I’m happy to sign those as well.

Saturday, June 7
I’m starting the day at the Philly Mag’s BeWell Boot Camp over at Drexel University’s recreation center. I’ll be on stage at 10 am, making the fastest batch of strawberry jam you’ve ever seen.

Later that same day, you’ll find me out at Wyebrook Farm. I’ll be doing two Honey-sweetened Strawberry Jam demos, one at 2 pm and another at 3 pm, and will also have copies of both books for sale and signing. That address is 15O Wyebrook Road, Honey Brook, PA.

Sunday, June 8
I’m teaching a Strawberry Vanilla Jam class at the Havertown Free Library from 2-4 pm. There are just a couple spots left in the class. If you want in, call (610) 446-3082 ext. 216 to register. There is a $5 fee for this class.

Monday, June 9
This is my last Philly-area event in June! I’ll be at the Jenkintown Whole Foods Market, teaching a demo-style jam making class. The class runs from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and is free! Call the customer service desk at 215-481-0800 to sign up!

Upcoming Classes and Events: Roxborough! Perkasie! Wyebrook Farm!

96/365

There’s a whole heck of a lot happening on the class and event front this week! Check the list and mark your calendars!

  • August 14 – Plum jam making workshop hosted by Henry Got Crops at the Weaver’s Way Farm off Henry Avenue in the Roxborough neighborhood of Philly. This is a pay-what-you-wish class, with all donations going to benefit the CSA program. The class starts at 6 pm and all levels of canning experience are welcome.
  • August 17 – My annual tomato canning workshop at Blooming Glen Farm in Perkasie, PA (cost is $75 per person). We start canning at 10 am and don’t stop until we’ve worked our way through 100 pounds of tomatoes (typically we’re done no later than 1:30 or 2 pm). All participants go home with 2-4 quarts of tomatoes (it depends on how many we managed to make) and the skills necessary to do it at home. Currently, registration is low for this class and it is in danger of being canceled. If you are interested, please sign up today!
  • August 18 – A free canning demo and book signing at Wyebrook Farm, with a few tastes of preserves from my pantry. I’ll make a batch of spiced plum jam and will have books to sign. The event starts at 2 pm. Click here to sign up.
  • August 20 – Spicy Tomato Chutney class at the Plymouth Meeting Whole Foods Market. Class is from 6:30 – 8:30 pm and costs $35. Sign up here.

I also have just three classes left in the preserving series I’ve been teaching this summer at The Brooklyn Kitchen in Brooklyn, New York. These classes are two-hour, hands on sessions. You’ll go home with a juicy packet of canning info and a jar or two of preserves. Prices vary depending on the topic.

August 24, 2 – 4 pm (tomatoes)
August 25, 2 – 4 pm (jam)
August 26, 6:30 – 8:30 pm (tomatoes)
