Our last jamming session was such a success at the school just down the road from us that we were asked back (thanks Lauren) to teach another group of gals.
Strawberries are in season here in California for this class we whipped up a batch of scrumptious strawberry jam.
Putting back in touch with our roots. Knowing where our food comes from and how it’s prepared is important for us city folk. Before the canning session the teacher had them go down to the local farmers market and before we started, we talked a little bit about the history and science of canning.

Smiles and laughter while putting the lids on. Canning puts people in a happy mood!
Enjoying the leftovers on toasted bagels. Finger licking good!

The jars of jam that we put up will be donated by the girls to a local food pantry/bank. We had a blast and we’ll be back next month with another group of girls.
Celebrate the harvest at home. Like to start canning? You can stock up on supplies at online store to get you started “putting up!”
