With Michigan’s growing season knocking on summer’s door, now is the time to consider ways to extend the beauty of our fresh, tasty peaches, strawberries, and plums long into the year via the art of jam making.
On Thursday, May 30, folks who want to extend the freshness of our summer long into the cooler winter months will want to attend this special Jam Making
class held at Creston's Lions & Rabbits and led by Cellar Door Preserves' owner and jam maker Zenobia.
Keeping with all things local, this special one-night-only class will focus on using seasonal produce and will seek to showcase how to create tasty preserves that can also be low in sugar.
With each paid admission includes light snacks and with most artist-centered events, organizers say to feel free to bring your favorite beverage to consume or share (or both).
All materials will be provided by Zenobia, with each participant leaving the event with a jar of fresh preserves, a lovely "How to Can" booklet, and the pure joy of knowing how to capture the sunshine of our Michigan growing season.
Please remember to bring a kitchen towel so you can easily carry home your hot preserves at the end of the class.
