May is coming, and with it, the official start to my 2015 teaching season. I’m not going to be teaching and demoing as much this year as I did last because I don’t have a new book out this year, and the amount I did in 2014 was more than a little insane. I am also going to be trying some new things, including a monthly live online class, so that those of you who aren’t geographically near can partake in my classes without either one of us hopping on an airplane.

  • Saturday, May 2 – I’ll be giving a talk and offering books for sale and signature at the Senior Adult Activities of Montgomery County’s annual brunch. Event is $40 per person. More information here. Tickets are available here.
  • Wednesday, May 6 – Spring Preserves with Weaver’s Way. We’ll make rhubarb jam and pickled asparagus in the kitchen at the Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting House. 7-9 pm. Click here to register.
  • Monday, May 11 – Quick Pickling at the Walnut Street West Free Library location. 5:30-7:30 pm. Contact the library at 215-685-7671 to sign up.
  • Saturday, May 16 – Preserving strawberries with honey and Pomona’s Pectin at the Morris Arboretum. 10 am – 12 noon. $40/45. Register here.
  • Tuesday, May 19 – Live online class through Concert Window! Class starts at 7 pm Eastern time and will finish up around 8:30 pm. Costs $20 and you can sign up here.

  • I’d LOVE to see you in an online class! I want to know more about Pomona’s Pectin and also the automatic jam and jelly maker machine from a canning company. 😉
    (I have it and my jam never turns out)

  • LOVE the idea of an online class! I’m in CA so that would be so amazing. I am going to attempt to pressure can beans for the first time this weekend, and it’s all thanks to you!

  • So glad other people are excited about the on-line class, too! Will be tweeting it out, and maybe finding a friend or two who want to watch together!

  • An online class would be wonderful. I’m just starting to learn to can. I’ve always been a little nervous about whether I can do it right..

  • Hi Marisa can you please tell me what topics you will be covering in your online class? Thanks for taking the time to do this class.

    1. Hi Terry! I’m going to be talking about the basics of boiling water bath canning, how to check for set, and how to ensure that you’re making the safest preserves possible. I’ll offer some streamlining tips and will also offer an opportunity for people to ask questions.
