In this two-part preserving series, Shakirah Simley (founder of Slow Jams and Bi-Rite's Community Coordinator) will teach participants practical applications for capturing fruits in flux. Take on peaches, tomatoes and berries in our "Savoring Summer" class on September 2. We will cover an introduction to canning theory, safety and preserving basics, and you will learn Shakirah's summer canning secrets for non-runny berry jam and how to tackle tomatoes like a champ.On September 30, "Fall into Fall" with our second course featuring apples, pears, figs and persimmons. She'll tackle all the tricks to thicker fruit butter, seasonal seasonings and deliciously boozy fruits.

As any preserver can attest, September's the time to can fruit so that the flavors' developed in time for holiday giving. When it comes to homemade gifts, it's definitely not too early to start your holiday making!

Series participants will receive 8 hours of hands-on canning instruction, recipes, full jars of in-class batches and a boost of canning confidence. There are limited spaces for individual course participants, who will receive 4 hours of instruction, recipes, and full jars of that week's in-class concoctions.

You may have noticed that the first class is on Labor Day Weekend; and we think that's perfect! This is good, honest labor that will produce delicious gifts for you and your friends. Wouldn't it be great if our 9-5's did the same?
