Join Renee Beaudoin as she teaches you how to turn your summer berry harvest into homemade jam! You’ll learn about flavor customization, the role of sugar, the stages of jam cooking, and how to test your jam for doneness. In class we will be making batches of classic strawberry jam, midsummer brambleberry jam, as well as turn some leftover berries into a classic British berry shrub. For those who have always been curious to try or at least see the water bath canning method, you will have an opportunity to do so, as well as learn how to make a long cold infusion with your berry shrub.
This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Renee will be teaching you how to prepare each recipe, with a Class Lead supporting you throughout. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, and we are keeping class sizes small to help facilitate this. Our online classes are great for groups, so each ticket is for one screen, with recipes designed for four servings. All classes are listed in Pacific Standard Time. This class is a fundraiser for ACLU of Washington, an organization that was hand picked by Renee for their work advocating for the civil rights of historically disenfranchised communities.

Don’t feel like shopping? There is an option to include an ingredients kit for your class, where we’ll prep all the necessary ingredients, and all you have to do is pick it up from our garden the day before class. If you would like an ingredients kit, please add both the class and the kit to your shopping cart. Please be sure that you select the same date for your ingredient kit and class! If you are already registered for this class and would like to purchase an ingredients kit, please send us an email, up to one week before class.
Two days before class we will email everyone the detailed recipe packet and a Zoom link. Your ingredient kit can be picked up between 10-7pm the day before your class.
