Make Your Own Jam

Summer is the season of fresh fruits and vegetables, available at grocery stores, farmers' markets, and even our own backyards. One of the best ways to bring a burst of summer flavor into a dull winter day is to make jam and jelly when the fruit is at its best. Making jam is a fun, easy, and inexpensive way to spend a summer afternoon.  

If you have always wanted to learn to make jam but don’t know how or think it is too difficult, come join us for a jam-making demonstration at the England Run Maker Lab on Saturday, July 1 at 10:00.  We will discuss the various ways of making jams and jellies, as well as make strawberry freezer jam for you to try.  Come by for our jam session, and check out books about preserving nature's bounty.
