Wow, I can’t believe it is mid February. Time moves fast around here at ” The Farm .” So much has been done. It is hard to sit inside and work on the computer. I have been waiting for a rainy day. It has not rained in weeks and we don’t have any coming in the near future. This is why you haven’t heard from me in a while. The garden is coming along nicely. We have three more fruit trees: Peach, Plum, and Nectarine. We have blackberries, blueberries and the raspberries are waiting for the bed to be made. We have something to eat out of the garden every day. I have seeds starting to germinate inside and waiting for the weather to warm up to be planted. Please check out the up coming classes on the page called ” Up coming Classes 2018. ” Come and enjoy a class and a tour of the garden. I’m sure we will be eating something from the garden for lunch. All In A Jar is very fortunate that ” The Kitchen “, the gourmet Ace Hardware store in Alamo has asked me back for a few classes.
I look forward to having you and a friend here at ” The Farm.”
See you in class

A few things different at All In A Jar this year. First class will be the third Saturday of each month starting at 10:30 am. Classes will run anywhere from 3 1/2 hours to 5 hours. This depends on how many hands are helping and how many recipes we will be making. I have so many new recipes I want to share with you. Some of the classes in the summer, when produce is plentiful, we will be making 3 recipes and maybe a surprise recipe too. The classes are still going to be hands on. You will go home with recipes, a small jar from each recipe and we will be sitting down for a meal together.
If you have something you would like me to teach, please let me know.

We will be making Cranberry – Lemon Marmalade. This is a yummy recipe I made with my girlfriend’s beautiful Meyer Lemons and I had some cranberries left after a Cranberry Curd class. Grapefruit Curd is sweet, tart , creamy and delicious on a tart or croissant. For our meal we will have Tomato Soup and a very decadent Roasted Walnut Onion Grilled Cheese Sandwich. For dessert a Tart with Grapefruit Curd.

We will be making Roasted Walnut Onion Jam. Yes, you read that right. This jam can be used many ways. I have used it as an appetizer by placing it on a cracker with goat cheese, I have made ravioli and a very decadent grilled cheese sandwich with it. Carrot Cake Preserves, this is a jar filled with delicious ingredients. When I made it the first time all I could think about was Carrot Cake and that is exactly what I did. I put it in the middle of the cake and in the frosting. For our meal we will be making Roasted Walnut Ravioli and a green salad. For dessert we will be making Carrot Cake.
March 18 at 10:30 This class will run longer due to the pressure canner.
We will be making Chicken Soup. We will be using a pressure canner . This is a low acid food and can not be processed with a water bath canner. It is wonderful to have chicken soup at your finger tips when you have a cold. Homemade Coarse Ground Mustard is great on pretzels and on a sandwich. Nutmeg Apple Conserve; this will jazz up your oatmeal. It is sweet, tart and warm with nutmeg. For our meal we will be having Chicken Soup, Biscuits and Salad. For dessert we will have Thumbprint Cookies With Homemade Jam.
