Reflections on the Spring Jam Making Class


It's been said that "many hands make light work".
Well, this is exactly what could be said about our spring jam making class.



Once everyone put their aprons on, they went out and foraged peaches
from our mini peach orchard.


Doesn't get more farm to table than these beauties!


Started with a short overview of my favorite canning supplies and books.

Sharing my best tips and a few canning secrets.

And then we were off! I believe the best way to learn is to just do it.
So that is exactly what we did.
A community table, full of diverse women, doing what we have done for years--
working together with many hands to process the harvest.
There is something deeply beautiful about this process.
Something that connects us to the land and our history as women.

talking, working, sharing, learning

in community. 

Step 
by step

by beautiful step.

Until we were done.


Loved being able to share my passion and knowledge for preserving food. 
Look for more classes this 2018/2019 season. 
If you have an idea for a class you'd like me to teach, message me,
I'd love to hear them.

Thank you, to the ever talented Stephanie of  www.lifecreated.com 
for documenting such a wonderful class. 💚
