Preserving the Harvest: Jams and Jellies

May 16, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Due to COVID regulations we are unsure if all classes will run. Put your name on the class wait list. Once we know we are able to run the class we will contact you to register.

Masks are required for in-person classes in all RSU18 buildings.

Ever wonder how to make and preserve your own jams and jellies? This hands-on food preservation workshop will teach you the basics steps for both canning and freezing. Participants will receive a “Preserving the Harvest” food preservation packet and will learn the latest and safest recipes, about equipment to insure safety, and how to check for properly sealed jars. Please bring a potholder with you to the workshop (you will be able to take home a jar of what we prepare that evening.) A $20 material fee is payable to the instructor at the start of class. Please join our Waitlist, and we will call or email when we have enough students for a class. Inclement weather makeup will be May 23. Limit 8 students.
