” Use Your Own fruit ” and How To Open A jar


The other day I had two students ( husband and wife ) here for a private class ” Use your own fruit”. They had a lot of Meyer lemons and needed help preserving them. This class is for people that have an abundance of produce and need help preserving it. I suggest many recipes for the family to select from then I give you a list of what to bring besides the produce. We make two recipes and you go home with all the jars. The other day we came up with Meyer Lemon Marmalade and Sparkling Wine Meyer Lemon Jelly. During the class the husband asked an important question; how do you open the jars. Wow, I have been teaching for over two years and I have not shared how to open a  jar. He has been using a small screwdriver. As he was telling me this all I could imagine is him hurting himself with the screwdriver. Please do not use a screwdriver, use a bottle opener and have some rings in the drawer where you keep the opener, so you can put the rings on after opening and place the jar in the refrigerator. If you or someone you know is growing food, this might be the class for you. The cost is the same as my canning classes, but you go home with all the jars. Private class are offered Sunday at 11:00am or Thursday 6:00pm.


See you in class
