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!
