red raspberry jam

red raspberry jam — what else would you expect?

Yes folks, there’s still time to learn about canning while making red raspberry jam. Check out the updated class schedule for details about the class scheduled for November 10, 2012.

new classes for 2013

I’ve partnered with the Glastonbury Parks and Recreation Department and the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension Service to develop a lecture/workshop series entitled, Glastonbury Grown: Gardening and Eating Locally. Here’s the series description from the Parks and Rec catalog :

Eating locally and sustainably is a theme that has grown in importance in the United States since its beginnings in Alice Waters’s kitchen in Berkeley. How do we accomplish this in Glastonbury with our cooler climate and our all-too-busy lives? This new program offers six one-night presentations that explore ways to take ownership of the food you grow or buy, eat, and serve to your families; it includes a mix of sustainable gardening and local food topics. The series has been developed by long-time resident, locavore, and author Jackie Callahan Parente in conjunction with the University of Connecticut Cooperative Extension System. 

Check out the Classes page for more information. The Parks and Rec Department will handle registration for these classes.

national can-it-forward day and can-o-rama!

Quick note to call attention to this import day that is less than a week away! National Can-It-Forward Day, sponsored by, the folks who make Ball and Kerr canning products. Along the same lines, Canning Across America is sponsoring can-o-rama on July 20th. Check out both of these web sites and plan to can, or freeze, or dry, or garden, or just eat what’s fresh and local!

canning classes

If you’re new to canning and want to learn, there are lots of options. The folks at FreshPreserving have a page devoted to canning classes across the country. If you’re near central Connecticut, I’m starting classes this Saturday, July 14. We’ll be making raspberry jam (with raspberries from my garden, what else?). See the classes pages of this blog for details.
