Just finished teaching a packed house of canners tonight how to can tomatoes three ways - boy the cannery smells good! We canned Bruschetta, Italian tomatoes, and Creole Sauce. While waiting for the pressure canners to finish, I made little garlic toasts, and we sopped up plates of bruschetta - yummy!
Some of the students missed the "Canning with Limoncello" class I gave in the spring, so I agreed to reteach it next week, Tuesday, July 12, 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. In this class, I teach the various stages of Limoncello (and of COURSE we sip a little!) Then we make two jams using this delicious Italian liquor.
I also agreed to teach "Pickling Fruits", and scheduled it for Wednesday evening, August 3. We'll turn juicy ripe peaches and pears into delectable dessert fruits! I love this class -- whipping out vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and whole allspice! All the sweetest spices of my childhood memories!
Both of these classes are for students who've already completed our Canning Boot Camp. If you are a graduate, and are interested in either of these, send me an email, as I don't think I'll have time to get these on our online roster. If you would like to register for Canning Boot Camp on Sunday, July 10, you may do so on our website: www.jamandjellylady.com
Thank you, all who came to class tonight, for helping me clean up. As always, I enjoyed the evening!
