Preserving!  Strawberry Jam

Learn to preserve the local harvest with Jammin’ Crepes Co-Founder & Cornell University Cooperative Extension Master Food Preserver, Kim Rizk. Each class will introduce you to a different preserved product (fruit butters, pickles, etc.). Kim will guide you through the recipe steps as you chop & cook, and will then show you the basics of water bath canning. All students will go home with the recipes and canning details, as well a jar of each recipe made that day – at least one being shelf stable. Each class will end with a tasting featuring a Cherry Grove Farm cheese pairing! Also, enjoy a 10% discount on CGF products in the farmstore the day of the class.
