Jar Series Class #2: Jamming & Canning

  • Wild Willow Farm & Education Center 2550 Sunset Avenue San Diego, CA, 92154 United States (map)

DESCRIPTION

This is class #2 and the last class of our jar class series where we are learning the dying art of preserving and canning food. In this class we're jammin' and hope you like jammin' too! Learn how to make jam using seasonal fruit and then can it for extended shelf-life using the water bath method. Canning was created because summer is a very productive season that typically produces more fruit than can be eaten and allows you to store the abundance and save it to consume at later less productive months. You will receive a jar of organic jam and directions to take home with you.
