Event Details

Berry Jamming and Canning Workshop

Join the Monadnock Localvores for a Berry Jamming and Canning Workshop in Dublin, NH.  

Come learn how to preserve our local berries using techniques that you can easily do at home. We'll demonstrate how to can jams and jellies with sterile technique; try some local jams with different recipes and talk about how to use this technique for other fruit and vegetables.  We'll be cooking in a garden kitchen built just for preserving fresh fruit and vegetables straight from the garden. We'll also get a chance to tour the garden and visit with some bees. 

This workshop will be held rain or shine.

Presenter: Cynthia Nichols and Suzanne Brouillette

Cynthia: "Happy memories of simmering delicious red raspberries in my Grandma's farm kitchen bring me to this past-time. The  jams were barely in the jar before they were on my toast! Even better - the bright tart flavors brought back the warmth of summer days to the middle of winter. I hope to help you see how easy it is to make your own! And what a great way it is to preserve the local harvest."

Suzanne is an avid gardener and has been canning for 35 years. She recently put together a summer kitchen specifically to be able to bring the harvest straight in from the garden and put it up right away. 

Registration for this workshop is limited.  The sliding scale fee is $5-15; but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. Workshop fees support Monadnock Localvore education and scholarship programs. 

After registering you will receive a confirmation email with directions to the workshop.
