Holiday time is approaching, why not make this the year you're extra-prepared and not scrambling for last-minute gifts. Home-canned goods can be made well in advance of the hectic holiday months (score!) helping to keep stress levels down and cheer levels up. Homemade holiday presents are not only a unique, thoughtful and affordable way to show your family and friends you care, but they're also a delicious and practical addition to any household lucky enough to receive them.
In the class we will focus on two seasonal preserving projects, a small jar of pickled jalapenos and an apple cider syrup & jelly. Participants will learn the fundamentals of sealing jars safely in a waterbath canner as well as a thorough understanding of some of the common safety concerns with sealing jars for shelf-storage. We'll also cover other ideas for complementary gifts in jars like homemade granola, fruit roll-ups, bread/pancake dry mixes and even a few non-edible (but quite useful) gifts in jars ideas.
Light refreshments will be served and every participant will take home a recipe packet, a ready-to-gift set of jars featuring our two canning projects plus an extra treat.
