The canning season is coming and with it, the start of my teaching year! I wanted to take a moment to point out my May 16 class at the Morris Arboretum. In this class, I’ll demonstrate how to make a low sugar batch of strawberry jam, sweetened with honey and set with Pomona’s Pectin.
This class will dig into the basics of boiling water bath canning and I’ll answer all questions you bring to the class. It’s great way to get yourself reset for the upcoming canning season.
The class costs $40 for Arboretum members and $45 for non-members and runs from 10 am to 12 noon. All participants will go home with a small jar of the jam made in class that day and I’ll also have books available for sale and signature.
Oh, how exciting! I’d love to teach some classes.
Love the cute knives! Are you able to share the source?
Terri, those are the Rachael Ray paring knives. Here’s a version of them, but they seem to be out of stock.
How do in enrol myself to this class?

I made jam with pomona’s pectin last year and really didn’t love it. the texture was odd, and then the jam that didn’t get eaten (there was quite a lot left–nobody enjoyed it) changed color. I tossed it all eventually. the seals were fine. What happened?
oh, and while I’d love to come to class next week, its quite a drive from florida!
Amy, I’m teaching an online class next week! Maybe you can make that!
