"In the Kitchen with Chicago Market: Homemade Fruit Preserves at Peterson Garden Project's Community Cooking School"


What better way to preserve fresh summer fruits than by making jam? This hands-on class is designed for the novice canner as well as the seasoned pro in need of a refresher. 

We will discuss the difference between jams, jellies, chutneys and marmalades and cover the basics of boiling-water-bath canning, including information on food safety and recommendations on how to store your newly canned goods. We’ll have materials available and will show you beautiful ways to package those homemade canned goods so that they look as good as they taste. Each participant will take home a jar of strawberry jam that they’ve made during the class!
