How to preserve tomatoes, pickles, jams and jellies. There’s nothing better than opening up a jar of home-preserved tomatoes or jam on a dark winter night, and remembering the tastes of summer! This class will cover basic canning for the beginner, using simple, inexpensive equipment. You will get to participate in making some strawberry jam, and we’ll also discuss how to preserve tomatoes and pickles. Class size limited to 10 people. Teacher: Bradley Kennedy first learned to can 8 years ago from a friend’s mother. She was hooked instantly, and every year since she has put up enough tomatoes and jam to last through the winter.
