with chef Elissa Rubin-Mahon

Sunday, August 6 or September 17

1:00 - 4:30 PM

Relish Culinary Center, Healdsburg
$89

Canning is trendy! Preserving seems to have skipped a generation as young DIY-combine tried-and-true methods with modern flavor combinations. Chef Elissa Rubin-Mahon, owner of Artisan Preserves, leads this class on delicious summer jams using local farm-fresh fruit and natural methods (read: no pectin or other additives.) Participants will make each of the jams from scratch—prepping the fruit, adding sugar, and cooking to specific temperature levels—as chef Elissa discusses the ideal ripeness of jam fruit, correct sugar-to-fruit ratios, temperature requirements, and more. Then we shift to the canning when Chef Elissa will cover steam and water-bath canning basics, including temperatures, times, pH, cleanliness and safety. After all of our work, participants will take home a jar of each jam, copies of all recipes and methods, and the knowledge and experience to confidently and safely make and can jam at home.

  • Strawberry-Anise Hyssop Jam
  • Peach Jam
  • Sweet & Spicy Moroccan Cherry Tomato Jam

Wine will be available for purchase by the glass or bottle.

Relish's On The Farm events are culinary gatherings on local family farms. All On The Farm events include a private farm tour, cooking discussion and seasonal four-course meal, featuring farm ingredients, served with specially-selected local wines. Chefs, chosen because of an affinity with the particular farm, will provide recipes that highlight the farm's specialty, whether it is produce picked at the peak of the season or artisan cheese at the height of flavor. All On The Farm locations are working farms and, as such, are rustic and natural. These intimate gatherings are limited to no more than 36 guests.
