Slow Food O’ahu Jam-making Class
August 18, 2012 10:00 – Noon, Honolulu private home
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make jam with all that leftover fruit? Summer is fresh fruit season. In Hawaii, we have had a bountiful year of fruit, including mango, lychee, and more. If you would like to learn how to make preserves from fruit using natural pectin, this workshop is for you. Participants will learn how to prepare fruit and to use a water bath to preserve the jars of jam. We will be using pineapple and other available fruit to teach you how to master the basic technique that can be applied to any type of fruit that you might have in abundance. This workshop is limited to 10 people so that everyone will have a chance to actively share in the production of the jam.
