    Been wanting to learn to can fruit, make your own jams for christmas or birthday gifts? Now is your chance to learn, in your home, and with friends! Have a Canning Party at your own home.

    I teach a 2 hour beginner canning course. We set this up as a group course for you and your friends. (5 people minimum) Classes on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon times. You choose.

    In the 2 hours you will learn all the basic of Waterbath canning.... sticking to in season produce. Each person in the class with get to keep one jar from the class as well. Take notes during class, but everyone will get a packet to take home as a refresher w/ extra recipes to try!!! All equipment is brought to site, and we clean up after class. We also meet up with your before so you can get an idea of who we are, and what a fun class this will be.

    The class is $25 per person and is due at the time of scheduling. If canceling a class, 50% of deposit is not returned if less then 1 week notice on cancellation. (This is 50% less then the county offers for a similar class.)

    Its a fun thing to do with family and friends, and get you ready to have the most creative gifts to give this holiday. Next year we'll have advanced canning classes available we'll be holding in Fuquay for larger groups.

    This month's canning class will be apples... Fresh packed canned and caramel apple jam. YUM! Get your best friends together and schedule a class now before we fill up for fall.

    This class is only available within 25 miles of Fuquay... this includes locations Cary, Holly Springs, Clayton, Apex, Lillington and small surrounding towns.

    I will schedule a meet up with you to discuss what the course offers, whats included and schedule a date for the class w/ deposit. DO NOT BID, just PM or post here for details!

    Well the course has been planned, and it looks to be a lot of fun! I've taught some friends on the 'quick' and they LOVED it. So I'm sure with a group of ladies and all the stuff I have planned, this would an awesome day/evening for a group of friends. Then they could all get together and do it again just jamming together for Christmas gifts. [​IMG]

    I wish you were closer too... I know I would really love to share this with some of the BYC ladies I adore on here!

    Thanks, for all the interest I've had nothing set up yet. I think this is a great idea... I just gotta figure out how to get people interested enough to go ahead and book. I thought to get groups of friends together to do Holiday gifts would have been awesome! [​IMG]

    Try these groups to get the word out:
    Surrounding and local AG Extension agents
    Home school groups
    CHurches
    Places where there are community gardens
    Bulletin boards at grocery stores

    I tried to learn from my mom, but it was too tramatic...I still run when I see cheese cloth
