I’ve made my teaching schedule intentionally lighter this year than it’s been in previous years, but I have a couple rapidly approaching classes I wanted to highlight.
The first is a jam making class this Saturday, May 16 from 10 am to 12 noon at the Morris Arboretum. I’ll demonstrate how to make a batch of honey-sweetened strawberry jam that is set using Pomona’s Pectin. This class is a terrific opportunity to refresh your skills for the upcoming season and will also help attendees get comfortable with both alternative sweeteners and Pomona’s Pectin. The class costs $40 for Arboretum members and $45 for non-members. Register here.
The second class I want to draw your attention to is my first-ever live online class. It will be on Tuesday, May 19 from 7-8:30 pm eastern time (but folks in other time zones are also welcome to join, I’ll just be appearing a bit earlier in your location!). In the class, I’ll make small batch of strawberry jam and will talk about canning safety, boiling water baths, and how to safely make a recipe your own. I will also be answering questions, so come prepared with your queries.
The class costs $20 and is being hosting by a service called Concert Window. If you want to participate, create an account on the site now and follow the event. I’ll start broadcasting promptly at 7 pm! Please let me know if you have any questions!
How did your first online class go? I was not able to watch it and I so wanted to
Tell me….Tell me….how do you think it went?
Anne, I think it went really well. I had 10 people in attendance and a few dedicated folks who participated in the chat stream. It’s definitely something I’m going to do again in the future.
