Description

Get ready for fall and all those wonderful fall flavors we love!

In this demonstration class attendees will learn the essentials of putting up Texas pears including how to safely and deliciously water bath can a handful of different types of projects to enjoy them year-round. Home-canned preserves like pickles, fruit butters and chutneys make excellent, unique holiday or housewarming gifts and can be made months in advance! Kate will also offer up ideas for ways to use up your pear preserves.

Participants will each take home a recipe packet, methodology handout, and two 8 oz jars of pear preserves.

Hi everyone, can't wait to see you all tomorrow. Please wear something you're comfortable cooking in (I have aprons on hand to borrow, too) because a portion of the class will be make-your-own jar style!
Also, please bring:
1. a grocery bag
2. a hot pad or something to carry home a still-hot jar safely.
