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)
I just cracked open my jar of Dilly Beans last night and they were met with rave reviews in the house! I’m going to take a swing at canning some tomato sauce tonight…hope it goes well!
