Join Member Kim Natzel to learn how to make homemade jam with summer fruits, and then participate in a hands on demonstration of jarring and canning. Once you’ve familiarized yourself with this easy process, you’ll be able to preserve your own jams, pickles, jelly, salsas, and even BBQ sauces!
Start the afternoon off with a cool summer beverage and array of snacks featuring homemade salsas, jams, and pickles, and other summer-worthy bites.
Then we make jam! Starting with a palette of farm fresh macerated strawberries, guests will choose creative ingredients such as herbs, spices, and liquors such as St. Germaine, Campari, or even Balsamic vinegar to make two flavors of jam for the event.
Once the jams have passed the taste test, it is time for the canning process! Kim will demonstrate all elements of jarring including the tools, supplies, and process. Take home your own homemade shelf-stable jam, as well as the recipes and detailed directions, and use your newfound skill to fill your cupboard with all sorts of delicious summer creations.
