The Art & Heart of Making Jam

Pantry at Delancey

Photographs by Julie-Anne Cassidy

Join Rachel in Seattle this September
as she teaches four classes
on the art and heart of making jam!

Dates and times: 9/14-9/17; actual times of class vary. 

Location: The Pantry at Delancey, 1417 NW 70th Street, Seattle, Washington; 206.436.1064

Class Topics:

Fruit Butters (12pm-2pm, 9/14): In this class, Rachel Saunders will show you how to make fruit butter from start to finish, with a special emphasis on the exciting flavor and fruit possibilities of early autumn. Our focus will be on what fruit butter is and how it is made, which fruits are most suitable for fruit butter, and how to cook your fruit butter to perfection. We will examine key topics such as the special care needed when dealing with high-pectin fruits, how to add spices and flavorings into a fruit butter, and how the cooking process for fruit butter differs from that of jam.

Jam Making 101 (10am-2pm, 9/15):  SOLD OUT In this 4-hour introductory class, Rachel will take you through the jam-making process from start to finish, with a special focus on seasonal fruits. We will cook four different jams, including two multiple-fruit jams. 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 stages of cooking, and how to test accurately for doneness.

Savory Fruit Jams Class SOLD OUT (6pm-10pm, 9/16): In this 4-hour class, explore the savory side of fruit! Rachel will open up the world of fruit jams to pair with cheese, teaching you how to make Blue Chair Fruit’s signature fig and tomato jams, as well as two other seasonal fruit jams with savory personalities. In addition to key jam-making topics such as the role of sugar, the importance of lemon juice, and the cooking process, this class will explore how to bring out the savory elements of fruit, both by selecting appropriate fruits and by using herbs and other flavorings.

Fall Conserves Class SOLD OUT  (6pm-10pm, 9/17): In this 4-hour class, explore how to create conserves — jams incorporating candied fruits, spices, and liquor — using a single-fruit jam as a starting point. We will examine how to transform a base recipe by incorporating outside flavorings and how to combine a base fruit with a secondary fruit, all the while carefully maintaining a perfect balance of flavor and texture.
