Memorial Day Jam with Happy Girl Kitchen Co.
We are so lucky here in California where we have access to the most AMAZING fruit! Have you ever wanted to learn how to make fabulous low-sugar jams with the local fruit? We are happy to show you how to do it.
In this workshop, we cover all you need to know how to make delicious jams and preserve food safely. You learn our secret techniques for making low-sugar jam packed with fresh fruit and flavor. We cover techniques for making and testing jam so that it comes out perfect every time. We begin with an hour-long introductory talk covering the topics of hot water bath canning, the PH scale and food safety. You get hands-on with some of the Bay Area's very best produce and learn the techniques to make great preserves at home.
Since we are right on the brink of summer fruits flowing into season, this is an ideal time to learn how to make jam, just as the fruit trees are all in bloom. Working with in-season local organic berries, the class learns to add spices, herbs and citrus to jams to create unique recipes. You also discover how to preserve fruit in honey in a compote. We'll make three different recipes and you go home with a jar from each.
