Jam Session: Something About Blueberries
Food & Drink
More specifically, delicious, delicious dark purpleyblue, thick, spreadable blueberry jam.
Jam so sweet that it brightens up the best of brunches. Jam that sits perfectly atop biscuits, oatmeal, toast, pancakes, cakes, yogurt, nuts and cheeses. Jam that preserves the taste of summer long after it has passed. Jam that we're going to learn how to make ... ourselves.
In this class, Dabblers will stir up a perfectly sweet batch of jam using some of summer's most freshly picked fruit offerings: BLUEBERRIES! Students will leave with 2 half-pint jars of their very own homemade blueberry jam and an informational zine with a recipe to replicate. This class is BYOB, as there is a lot of stirring and not too much exact measuring. (It's been scientifically proven that wine can improve the taste of jam, after all.)
Blueberries will be sourced locally from farmers in Michigan, to support our local economies and small businesses, to boot. Jam with ethics!
The question isn't whether to take this class or not, it's really "Do you take sugar? One lump, or two?"
