Understanding the role of sugar in preserving is an important first step to understanding how you can reduce the sugar in your jam without sacrificing quality and taste. In this hands-on class, you will look at the role sugar plays in making an early summer berry jam; you’ll make a full-sugar as well as a low-sugar jam so you can examine the difference in taste, texture and consistency.
Join Christine Manning, owner of Manning Canning and long-time preserver, as she teaches you how to safely preserve all the juiciness of fresh summer berries with full and reduced sugar recipes. You will walk out of this class with the basic understanding of jar sterilization, safe canning practices and important do’s and don’ts of canning and preserving. You will also get a copy of both recipes and jars of the jams to take home.
Christine Manning is the founder of Manning Canning, a local food company that makes a selection of unique jams, jellies, preserves, pickles and other delectable spreads from locally sourced produce.
