In the workshop you will learn how to make 2 different preserves; one chutney and one jam. Guided by myself through instruction and demonstration you will prepare and process seasonal fruit and vegetables into delicious preserves that you will take home with you at the end of the day. The day will begin with a tasting session of different types of jams and chutneys. This will be followed by a brief overview of how preserving works, the equipment needed and basic jam/chutney making methods. You will then cook at your own work station, by induction hob or gas hob, in a friendly, informal atmosphere. Throughout the day everything you need to prepare and make your preserves will be supplied, including a restorative cup of tea or coffee. You will make a chutney in the morning followed by a jam after lunch. Having labelled your preserves, you take home all the jars and chutneys you make. Lunch offers another opportunity to sample home made food using seasonal produce. Each workshop is based around ingredients that are seasonally available or preserved through freezing or dehydration. If the dates you would like are not currently scheduled, contact me to arrange an alternative date; weekdays included.
A teacher for over 30 years, my passion now is to teach the art of preserve making by passing on skills taught to me by my mother and grandmother before her. I love nothing more than to spend time on my allotment growing produce to transform into delicious preserves to share with my family and friends. If I am not digging and planting you will find me in the kitchen jamming and canning. I teach people how to make jams, pickles and chutneys, fruit vinegars, liqueurs and cordials. I also keep chickens and bees and generally live the good life in a suburban setting.
