From All In A Jar wishing you and your family and friends a wonderful holiday season. Let them be fun and safe. Love , Peace and Happy New Year.

Spreading Joy

All In A Jar is back on the road again, spreading joy for the up coming holiday season.
Ace Hardware in Alamo has asked All In A Jar back to teach in their gourmet kitchen.
Special Holiday Class. Prefect gifts for friends and family.
Nov. 7th at 11:00am to 2:00. Only cost $55.00
Each student will go home with a jar from each recipe. A snack will be served and you’ll get 15% off any purchase from the kitchen department. If you haven’t been to this store you will love it! It’s like a candy store for anyone that likes to can or cook.
Here is what we will be making that day.
Cranberry Ketchup: is wonderful on a slice of roasted turkey, use it in a turkey sandwich or
a turkey burger. Great on turkey meatloaf too.
Zinfandel Wine Jelly: can be used as an appetizer with some hard cheese like Manchego cheese, it’s great with brie cheese also or as a dessert on ice cream or a tart with some cream cheese. I found my husband eating it in some yogurt.
Bourbon Honey Mustard: what more do I need to say. I love this on a grilled sausage, steak sandwich, or to make a salad dressing.

There are a few spot left, please contact Dianne at;
The Kitchen at Alamo Hardware
3211 Danville Blvd

Finally It Fells Like Fall

What a wonderful summer All In A Jar had with the students that attended classes. Thank you! We had access to a lot of beautiful fruits and vegetables to play with in class. Some people think it is time to put away the canning supplies. But wait… no need to; we have more canning to do. What about all those amazing pears? You can make pears with toasted almonds and almond liqueur, pear ginger jam, hearty chutney or pear halves in simple syrup. So many varieties of apples out there too, what about a spicy apple butter, apple pie filling,  applesauce or apple jelly. For those oranges, how about marmalade or sparkling wine orange jelly or orange vanilla crud. Some other great ideas, persimmon jam or butter, pickled brussels sprouts, cauliflower, onions, carrots and beets. Fall and winter are great times to can, added bonus of warming your home up too. Especially when using your pressure canner because it has a long processing cook-time. With the pressure canner you can be making soups, stews, beans, tuna, and much more. This is a great time to make some homemade sausage for the freezer; cooler days work best when working with meat. Don’t let the cold weather or rain stop you from canning! Homemade canned goods make the best gifts. So get in the kitchen and start canning! The holidays are  coming.
November 29 Saturday is support local small businesses. Please remember our local small businesses when shopping for gifts this holiday season.
