Virtual Cook Along: Homemade Refrigerator Jams, Jellies and Pickles Workshop

It's no secret that locally grown, harvested-in-season produce is more nutritious than commercially prepared products, and it tastes so much better, too! Join our chef in a 2-hour intensively interactive virtual workshop where we’ll cover the basics of making refrigerator jams, pickles and jellies. If you have never made jams or pickles, this is a great introductory course; with a few simple tricks and tips, you’ll be enjoying the farm fresh flavors of summer for months to come! Note that we will cover canning basics in our class discussion and
include directions in the recipe packet, but will not be canning during class. The recipes made during this class should be stored in your fridge and will not be canned using a water bath for shelf-storage. We encourage you to use Ball Jars in class today, but any heat-proof jars or containers will do.

You can choose to make all of the items, or select the recipes you would like to cook along with your chef in real time. Either way, your chef will make sure all of your questions are answered during or after class.
