    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.

    I am planning on putting together an informational booklet with some of my recipes to sell on Etsy w/ a canning starting kit. Includes everything except fruit/sugar and jars. We'll see though! [​IMG]

    I really wanted to get some of this going this fall before the holiday! Thought people would love to do their own gifts. Especially with the good prices on citrus for marmalades.

    I do have people scheduling their classes for spring here, though that is nice... not sustaining us through the holiday [​IMG] But that's ok.... things have a way of working out, long as I keep working hard! [​IMG]
