Livestream Canning Sessions

On the first and third Mondays of the month at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT, you’ll find me offering free, live canning demos over on the Food in Jars Facebook page. I demonstrate how to make a seasonal recipe and answer all your questions. The next livestream is on Monday, June 3, 2019. Join me!

Public Demos and Workshops

I am available to teach canning demos at libraries, festivals, and other public events. Fees for those services vary. I am currently booking dates through June 2019 (I am pregnant with twins and am due August 2019, so I am unable to teach past the end of June).


If you’re interested in booking me for an event, please drop me a note at for more information or to inquire about pricing and availability.

Private Classes

Opportunities for private classes are occasionally available within the Philadelphia region. Please contact me for pricing and availability.
