Class is open in July

All In A Jar’s Class room

All In A Jar is so excited to have students back here at The Farm.

I have decided to add Thursday night 6:00 to 9:00 for the students

that can’t come on a Saturday. The same recipes will be offered as the

Saturday classes. The first class dates are July Thursday 15 and Saturday 17.

We will be making Peach Bourbon BBQ Sauce, Peach Raspberry Jam, Spicy

Pickled Tomatoes and Strawberry Lemon Fruit Leather. We will be using

a dehydrator. At the end of class we will be sitting down for a meal together.

I want to remind you that you can have a private class or if you have an abundance

of product from your garden I can help you with that.

Looking forward to seeing you in class,

Penny

Fall Is Here

Thank goodness Fall is here. The air is cool and crisp with leaves falling and beautiful sunsets. This makes good working weather.

All In A Jar hopes you had a wonderful summer. We had an amazing summer with our daughter’s wedding and family and friends visiting. Playing on a near by lake and yes, canning. Someone gifted me a box and half of Peaches and a box of Pears. It was a lot of fun being creative with this delicious produce. It was very hot out here this summer. We had many days in a row that were triple digits. That made it hard to get things done around here. But that didn’t stop us.

You haven’t heard much from me lately because I have been putting in a huge garden. When I say huge I mean 80 feet by 50 feet with a eight and a half foot fence around it. That alone was a feat in itself. We have moon dust and river rocks that is hard to work with a shovel. The plan is to start classes in the garden and go in the kitchen to have some fun canning.

So far, I have seven fruit trees planted; two Cherry, two Pear, two Apple and one Apricot. I have three more trees I want to plant in the late fall. They will be Peach, Plum and Nectarine. Meanwhile, I have Fava beans planted as a cover crop to get the soil ready for the trees.
The garden beds are 16 feet long by 4 feet wide. I have three finished with irragation and planted.

It is starting to look like a Farm.

P.S. We have a grand baby on the way.

See you in class

Peach Raspberry Jam is sweet and tart. Great on toast, in thumbprint cookies, in yogurt and over ice cream. Garlicky Broccoli Stem Relish; you can use this on sandwiches, and on toasted baguette with your favorite cheese. Homemade Barbecue Sauce; not too sweet and a smoky spicy flavor. Nectarine Conserve with Raisins and Walnuts; I love conserve they have a lot going on. They are sweet, sticky and can be used as an appetizer with bread and cheese, as a dessert on top of pound cake or ice cream, even for breakfast in oatmeal.
