If summer had a flavor it would obviously be fresh fruit. Nothing beats the feeling of biting into an overly plump fruit, letting a little juice drip off your chin and then devouring the rest of whatever tasty treat is in season. Problem is, fruit (real, local, seasonal fruit) only stays "in season" for a few weeks every year. The brightest among us have figured out how to save the best of summer by literally canning the goodness and storing it for cold winter days. Lucky you. We know one of those smarties and she's willing to share some secrets.
Kathy Lee is the founder and chief jam maker at Modern Gingham Preserves. She's committed to utilizing local fruits -- ideally hand-picked and sourced from someone’s garden or neighborhood tree that might otherwise go unpicked. Kathy will provide hands on instructions on how to make jam using locally sourced fruits. During this experience you will learn how to process and can the jam guided by the expert herself.
Depending on the abundance of surplus local produce each guest should bring home 1-2 8 oz jars of their recently canned preserve. (Modern Gingam Preserves normally retail for $10/jar.)
