Let’s turn to bright citrusy flavors during our dark northern winter and learn the fundamentals of preparing and canning marmalades. Longtime home canner Erin Swenson-Klatt will share some of her favorite recipes utilizing grapefruits, oranges, lemons, and kumquats. The class will work together to prepare several marmalades from start to finish, learning about ingredient selection, blanching, and cooking to a proper set. Students will also can each batch of marmalade using water bath canning methods, and will go home comfortable with the fundamentals of home canning equipment and techniques. This is great class for beginning canners, curious cooks, and citrus aficionados! Students will go home with a sampling of the class’s sweet projects. Students should be comfortable standing for long periods of time.
