Fall Preserving with Shakirah Simley

Sunday, September 20th

"Fall into Fall" with our second preserving course with Master Preserver, Shakirah Simley. This hands-on class will feature a few of Shakirah's favorite fall fruits, including heirloom apples, crisp pears, juicy figs and sweet grapes! Shakirah will tackle all the tricks to thicker fruit butter, a seasonal pickle and deliciously boozy fruits. We will cover an introduction to canning theory, safety and preserving basics, and you’ll learn Shakirah's canning secrets for autumnal treats.

As any preserver can attest, September is the time to can fruit so that the flavors are developed in time for holiday giving. When it comes to homemade gifts, it's definitely not too early to start your holiday making!

Class participants will receive 3 hours of hands-on canning instruction, recipes, full jars of in-class batches and a boost of canning confidence.
