In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to make all-natural preserves from luscious fall fruits and spices. You'll roll up your sleeves, chop, stir, and make a jar each of pear jam and apple chutney to take home along with a recipe sheet.
We'll discuss how to choose the most flavorful ingredients, how to make preserves without added pectin, how to safely can foods using the boiling water bath method, and any other questions you have about canning.
