It's been a long, hard week of canning classes and canning! Taught Beginner's all day Sat., and last night was Curds. The beginners were wonderful. What an education I received! Aileen and Dessie (with multiple degrees in anthropology and biological conservation) work for Vista to bring agribusiness techniques to Clinton County (which REALLY needs an economic boost due to the loss of DHL). Good luck, ladies, and let me know if you need any help. Perhaps I could gather some canning jars for some of your charges?
And lovely Alena is a Criminal Justice prof at Miami (not to mention a profiling consultant for local law enforcement), but pours her love and time into operating her own horse rescue! Wow - forget learning how to can - I could have spent weeks learning from these wonderfully giving women!
But can we did. Strawberry Jam and Glazed Carrots. It was a little nippy outside, but in the cannery twas warm and steamy, and quite delicious when we served warm pound cake with fresh Strawberry Jam!
We teach canning classes year-round except for August, Sept., and Dec. If you would like more information please click on www.jamandjellylady.com. We'd love to teach you!
