Classes and Events: Philly! Horsham! New Jersey! Lancaster!

July 11, 2012(updated on December 6, 2021)

On Monday, I wrote about some of my upcoming events. In order to round out the balance of the month, here’s the rest of what’s coming up in July. I’m also throwing in a couple of events in early August, since time seems to be passing so quickly these days.

(Click here to see my events July 11 through July 22.)

On Monday, July 23, I’ll be at the Callowhill Whole Foods Market from 5 – 7 pm doing an apricot jam demo in the produce section. They’ll have books on hand for sale and I’ll have samples of fresh, hot apricot jam right around 6 pm.

Tuesday, July 24, I’m teaching a class at Pennypack Farm and Education Center in Horsham, PA. This three-hour class (6 – 9 pm) will be an introduction to boiling water canning and will feature dilly beans and peach chutney. The class costs $40 and you can sign up by clicking here.

At 2 pm on Wednesday, July 25, I’ll be talking about canning and signing books at the Mercer County, New Jersey’s Lawrence Headquarters Branch Library. Books will be available for purchase and I’ll be bringing a couple of treats from my pantry.

For those of you in Bucks County, I’ll be at the Ottsville Farmers’ Market on Friday, July 27 from 4 – 8 pm, signing books and answering canning questions.

On Sunday, July 29 from 12 noon – 2 pm, I’m teaching a canning class at the very elegantly appointed Cook in Center City Philadelphia. We’re making spiced peach jam, a gingery plum chutney and quick-pickled cucumber pickles. The class costs $85 and is kept small so that students have the opportunity to ask questions and really observe the process. Click here to sign up.

On Thursday, August 2, I’ll be at Greensgrow during their CSA pick-up and market hours, selling and signing books and answering canning questions. Stop by from 3 – 7 pm!

Friday, August 3, you’ll find me out in Lancaster, PA for an evening of events. Many thanks to Betsey Gerstein Sterenfeld, owner of Essen Cooking School for helping set up the following events.

  • 4 – 5 pm, I’ll be at DogStar Books (401 W. Lemon Street), signing books and saying hi.
  • 5:30 – 6:30 pm, I’ll be teaching a canning class at Lemon Street Market (241 W. Lemon Street). That class costs $20 and you can sign up by clicking here.
  • 7 – 9 pm, I’ll be at the Essen Cookbook Club at Manheim Township Public Library. Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share from (or inspired by) the Food in Jars cookbook. This event is free, but reservations are required. Click here or call 717-391-8270 to sign up.

On Saturday, August 4, I’m teaching a class at Indy Hall in Philly. This class runs from 11 am – 1 pm and will focus on low sugar canning. I’ll walk students through the steps of using Pomona’s Pectin and offer tips on making a satisfying jam without a lot of sugar. Click here for more information and details on how to sign up.
