Preserve the Season - July

I have been preserving homegrown and local produce for over 20 years now and in this hands-on preserving class, I will be sharing my passion and knowledge with you.

I will be making jams, jelly and pickles from scratch in the traditional way to best capture the flavours and vibrancy of the fruit.

You will learn the skills and techniques to inspire you to make the most of seasonal produce and preserve at home and you will have a selection of wonderful recipes not to mention a few jars of delicious jam and pickles to take with you.
