Prior to arrival, we will discuss what fruit is available and select the type of fruit to use. I will purchase the fruit and have all of the supplies necessary to make 6 jars of gourmet homemade small batch jam. ( example: Apricot Lavender, Blueberry, Peach, Basil Plum, Lavender Jelly, etc....) We will prepare the fruit, cook the jams and bottle 6 jars for you to take home, with your own private label! This is a great activity to do as a date or with some friends and family.
My name is Stacey and I love to cook. My grandmother taught me how to make my own jams and to preserve fruit from my own garden. She sparked an interest and a passion, and now I have spent years exploring various small batch jams and jellies and I would love to share my experience with you. I am an art major, I have owned a design studio for 20 years, and now I just experiment, in the kitchen and in my studio. I use local farm grown fruit found in farmer's markets, and together we will make a small batch of gourmet jam that you can take home to share with family and friends. Making jam is super easy and fun, and this experience will leave you confident that you can do this at home in the future on your own. I will share the techniques, and recipes that I have and teach you how to enjoy the process! Making gourmet jams is FUN!
I provide the fruit we’ll need and snacks and beverages while we work!
You will come to my home and we will work in my gourmet kitchen with a view of the mountains! I live in a National Park and our home is the last house before solid woods! The space is large and the views can’t be beat. One wall of my kitchen is all glass:) Creating your jam will be a fun and interesting project that will teach how easy it is to make unique and complex flavored jams.
