Preserving – Jam Making (21 Sept)

This workshop is part of our “Preserving Series” that runs from July to December 2019. In this hands-on workshop you will learn the basics of jam making. Understand the nature of chutneys and why they are in the same “family” as jams when it comes to preserving. Learn a basic cordial recipe that can be used for any high-acid fruit such as lemons, limes and grapefruit. Understand the distinction between a marmalade and a jam. Bookings opening soon.

About the Series

Taking in salting, picking (vinegar), jam making (sugar), fermenting, drying and food labelling, this range of workshops is at the heart of Slow Food’s philosophy which includes reduced food waste and eating local produce. They will help you to understand how to extend the life of the produce that is right here at our doorstep. Preserving our local produce when it is in season (and when there is ample available) means we can have that food when it is out of season and without it having to travel half way around the world to get to our plate. Now that’s sustainability!
