Happy New Years!

We had a house full of family, good food and much love.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season too.

Up coming class here in (Ione) Jan. 30, we will be making Vidalia Onion Conserve. This is an amazing appetizer waiting in a jar.
Also Sliced Apples with Black Pepper & Rosemary, which is wonderful with pork. We will be preparing our lunch around what we have canned.

All In A Jar is very thankful to Orchard Nursery in Lafayette for asking   All In A Jar to do a demonstration yesterday. I was pleased to see two of my students there, who cheered me on, and a few new students who were excited to learn the art of preserving food. I made Strawberry-Raspberry Vanilla Bean Jam. It was delicious! I am looking forward to Wednesday night’s class and Saturday day’s class. We will be making Fennel Sweet Onion and Tequila Hot Sauce. 

   

 
See you in class

Please stop by Orchard Nursery in Lafayette this Tuesday, January 22 from 10:00  to 12:00 and see All In A Jar making Strawberry Raspberry Vanilla Bean Jam. And yes, of course, there will be a tasting too.
