Jam Canning Workshop

Have you ever wanted to can your own jam or save the beautiful produce you've grown or purchased from the farmer's market? Have you felt that it was too challenging or just needed some direction on where to start?

Let's start with the basics - strawberry jam.  This May, I will be offering a workshop in my home teaching you how to can a batch of homemade strawberry jam.  We will be using freshly picked, locally grown strawberries and turn them into beautiful bright red jam.  The process is simple and straightforward, and a perfect place for a beginner to canning to start.  I myself am fairly new to canning, although I have been around it my whole life.  My grandma always had jars and jars of home canned items at her house.  She also has always had a garden, and it's from her that I got my desire to garden, bake, and preserve foods.  Now, I'm wanting to pass this on to you.  My idea for the workshop came from one of my lovely Instagram friends, who lives my dream life on a farm, and offers weekend canning workshops at her farm.  I'm also planning on offering a second workshop later in the summer on canning tomatoes (with hopes that my own garden successfully yields enough to provide the tomatoes we need).

Below you will find all the information for the jam canning workshop!
