Blueberry Jam Workshop
Join New West Farmers Market President Jen Arbo and heal yourself with tea, toast, and jam!
Where: Qayqayt Elementary School, New Westminster [map]
When: Tue, 11 April 2017, from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
What You’ll Learn
Working as a group, you will learn how to make blueberry jam. We will use the boiling water bath method to can delicious frozen berries from last year’s market. While the jam bubbles and processes, we’ll bake fresh bread, and reward ourselves with a feast of tea, toast, and jam at the end!
All participants will leave with a small jar of their hard work to show off at home.
No experience canning is necessary—we will walk through the process together. This workshop is suitable for ages 13+. Please wear clothes that are okay to get blueberry juice on them because sometimes spills happen! Both caffeinated and non-caffeinated teas will be available.
This jam recipe uses liquid pectin and a whole bunch of white sugar. If that’s not your ”jam” this isn’t the workshop for you, but please do contact us firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’d be interested in a low-sugar, no pectin, fruit spread workshop in the future!
Space is limited, so register soon!
