Jam Making

  • Tuesday, March 26, 2024, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Canning jams and jellies is an easy, fast, and fun way to preserve fruit. In this workshop, we'll go over some of the basics of canning including equipment and food safety, and then learn how to make jams and jellies. Participants will have the opportunity to practice these skills with hands-on demonstrations and will take home some of the items that they make! 

Due to the hands-on nature of this topic, it will only be offered in person and attendance will be limited to 16, pre-registration is required.

Instructor Aly Trombitas is the Nutrition Director at CCE Tompkins and has completed the statewide Master Food Preserver training. She has many years of experience teaching all ages about food, environment, and agriculture. She is also generally enthusiastic about food preservation.
