Tomato Can Jam with Shakirah Simley - SOLD OUT!
Tomato Can Jam with Shakirah Simley
18 Reasons
Monday, September 9, 6:00-9:00PM
$55 for 18 Reasons members; $65 for the general public

Did you know that the average American eats 22 lbs. of tomatoes every year (mostly in sauce and ketchup form)? Make that tomato gorging truly worth your while, and learn to preserve with Shakirah Simley, founder of Slow Jams and Bi-Rite Market's Canner-In-Residence.

In this demo and hands-on class, we'll identify varietals and taste tomatoes suitable for canning at home. Then, we'll tackle canning tomatoes across the preserving spectrum like Heirloom Tomato Ketchup, Spicy Canned Tomatoes and Sweet Tomato Jam. We'll top off our tomato adventure with hearty bites, Shak's fave preserved picks and a cold summer pils.

Participants will take home a helpful tomato canning guide, jars of our in-class concoctions and a serious boost of canning confidence.

About Shakirah
Shakirah Simley is the Community Coordinator and Canner-in-Residence for Bi-Rite, where she wears a number of hats including: developing jams and preserves for its PUBLIC Label line, cooking instructor at 18 Reasons (its educational arm) and community coordinator in charge of giving and community outreach, with a penchant for programs that support youth empowerment and increase access to healthy food. Before arriving on 18th Street, Shakirah attended the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy on a Fulbright scholarship, where she received her Masters degree and studied under Italian canners. She has previously worked on nutrition and recreational equity policy issues, on youth organizing campaigns, and owned her own small-artisanal jam business, Slow Jams. She was recently named one of Zagat's "30 under 30: SF Bay Area Up and Comers." Shakirah loves putting her food systems, community engagement and jammy talents to work every day, and if you catch her on 18Th street, she loves to talk food justice, policy, jamming, school food and the perfect cappuccino.
