The end of harvest season is in sight, and I'm making plans for some rockin' canning classes this fall/winter! Let's start filling your pantry with wondrous gifts that you CAN'T buy at the mall!!!
Ever been nervous about canning shelf-stable food - wary of serving it to your family and friends - worried about botulism? If you want a comprehensive canning class that focuses on food safety as it relates to USDA-approved water bath and pressure canning techniques, Beginner's Class is for you!
After taking this class, you'll be canning confidently and knowledgeably with a newfound food science background. I'm offering one Beginner's Class: October 3, Sunday, noon till 6. Maximum 10 students. The second class is on Saturday, November 20, 10-4. $75 per person. Please register and pay on our website!
I'm also offering four Master's Classes in October and November. You must have completed our Beginner's Class before registering for Master's Classes because I will NOT address food safety in Master's - we concentrate on recipes and techniques.
On Wed., October 6 at 6:30 p.m. I'll teach Sinfully Rich Apple Variations, featuring Spiced Vanilla Apples and Caramel Apple Jam. $25 per person.
On Wed., October 27 at 6:30 p.m., I'll teach Holiday Preserves I. We'll learn Cinnamon & Cayenne Pickled Pears and Cran-Strawberry Butter. Bring a small basket to hold 2 jars - I'll teach you how to make a wired bow and we'll professionally wrap your basket with the preserves you made this night. One gift down! $30 class cost.
On Wed., November 17 at 6:30 p.m., I'll teach Holiday Preserves II. We'll learn 5-Pepper Jelly and Brandied Cardamom Peach Jam! Bring a very small basket that will hold 2 1/2-pints of preserves so that I can teach you how to "finish" your gift! $30 class cost.
Finally, at 6:30 on Monday, November 22, I'll teach one last Master's Class for the year. I hadn't planned on adding this session, but a customer pointed out that after the November 20 Beginner's Class, I'd not offered any more Master's Courses before the holidays, and she really wanted to learn more about cool canning gifts before that time. Silly me for not noticing that glitch in the schedule! Stay tuned for the class description for this date. Should have it figured out by September 14. Thanks for your patience!
