Make and Can Spiced Pear Jam

with Allison Carroll Duffy


Autumn is pear season! They are so delicious and fresh, but their season is short….why not make jam with beauties to enjoy year round, or to give away as holiday gifts? Join Allison Carroll Duffy, Master Food Preserver and cookbook author, for this hands-on workshop to learn how! In this workshop, you’ll learn how to make pear jam, as well as how to can it, and package it for gift-giving if you like. We’ll discuss the basics of safe home canning, including proper procedures, techniques, and use of tools and equipment. Then, the class will learn hands-on by making a big batch of Spiced Pear jam and canning it using the boiling water bath method. There will be plenty of jam to taste, and each participant will go home with a jar of jam to enjoy.
