In The Kitchen with Chicago Market: Canning 101- Jams & Jellies

What better way to preserve summer fruits than by making jam? This hands-on class is designed for the novice canner as well as the seasoned one in need of a refresher. Master Canner Liat Shanan will discuss the difference between jams, jellies, chutneys and marmalade and cover the basics of boiling-water-bath canning, including information on food safety and recommendations on how to store your newly canned goods. You’ll get a chance to make and can your own jar of seasonal fruit preserves in class, and leave with the confidence you need to do it with success at home!
