Event Overview

It's that time again. Fall. Fall, at least in my mind, brings about the scent of fallen, colorful leaves, chilly crisp winds, bright sunshine, and the sweet smell of beautiful apples! Eating them out of hand can only last so long, until you long for thick, sweet, apple preserves.

In this class, we'll learn the basics of canning & preserving to keep our apple chai jam fit for our pantries all winter. We'll core and chop apples, cook them down with sugar, and then spice the whole batch. Learning the basics for a chai spice base, the class will decide together what spices to put in our blend to make a wholly unique preserve just from the class. Recipes will be provided so everyone can remake the preserves at home.

This class will be BYOB, as sipping wine or a favorite beer in the afternoon while jamming is quite possibly the perfect thing.
Each student will come home with 1 half pint jar filled with spiced apple goodness. Bring a bag to put a hot jar into!

(Side note: The apple harvest was hit hard this year by that early spring thaw and then unexpected freeze. )

    This was a great class, and I loved taking home my sealed jar of apple chai preserves, and a little extra for the fridge! I also picked up some organic veggies from the co-op while I was there. I'll be making another batch at home for holiday gifts. :-)
