Stone Fruit has arrived!! Hurrah!! Join Slow Food East Bay & local jam maker extraordinaire Karin Fomsgaard for an afternoon of chopping, cooking, stirring and preserving.
We'll be meeting Sunday, June 16th from 2:30pm-5:30pm at Kitchener Oakland, on 24th Street near Webster in Oakland's uptown neighborhood.
We'll walk through the steps of making jams and preserves, discuss pectin versus no, sugar options and various recipe variations, using amazing new season apricots. Karin will share her sources for fruit and the way she formulates her recipes.
You'll end up with some great hands-on skills and go home with a few jars to enjoy on your morning toast (or as part of next winter's cheese course!). Not too shabby, if we say so ourselves!
Please bring a paring knife and an apron. We'll supply everything else, plus a few snacks. :-)
