Jars waiting to be filled!

Jars waiting to be filled!

In this 4-hour introductory class, Rachel takes you through the jam-making process from start to finish, with a special focus on seasonal fruits. We will cook four different jams, including at least one multiple-fruit jam. Our focus will be on identifying the physical properties of different fruits and understanding how these properties affect both the cooking process and the end result. We will examine key topics such as the role of sugar, the importance of lemon juice and how to add it, the states of cooking, and how to test accurately for doneness. This class starts with an hour-long jam tasting and discussion, then proceeds to the cooking process.

Tea, dessert, and a light dinner will be provided, and you will receive four small jars of jam to take home!

Tropical Vacation + Jam!

Beautiful Belcampo Belize

Blue Chair Fruit is thrilled to announce our collaboration with Belcampo Belize this spring! Come with us for four exquisite nights at the 12-room hotel, 3000-acre farm, and 15,000-acre rainforest preserve that is Belcampo Belize. Transplanting modern nostalgia to the tropics, Rachel will teach a jam and marmalade master class, bringing traditional preserving techniques and approaches to flavor and texture, while exploring the full range of ways to combine fruits, herbs, and spices into luscious spreads. When you are not stirring bubbling fruit concoctions, tour local spice farms and uncover exotic ingredients native to Belize. By the conclusion of the course, you will have gained the skills and confidence necessary to become a successful and creative home jam maker.

Package includes:
  • Transfers to and from Punta Gorda airstrip
  • Nightly accommodation
  • Daily guided tours and jam tastings
  • All meals
  • Laundry Service
