Creative Homesteading: Fruit Preserves & Jams

September 7 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free - $5.00

The produce of the Wyckoff Farm constantly shifts with the seasons, jams and canning were traditional ways of capturing some of these flavors to enjoy throughout the year. Spend the afternoon with Farmer Zach as he demonstrates the steps of creating homemade jam, from cooking and jelling, to processing and sealing. Participants will leave with some canning history as well as some tips and tricks on how to safely can at home.

This workshop is recommended for participants ages 13 and up.

Arrive early to visit our Farmers Stand for organic Brooklyn grown produce.

About Tickets:

This workshop is a free demonstration. Participants will be able to sample the fruit preserves we make together. Jar kits are available for purchase if you’d like to take home some samples of your own. Kits are $10 each. We like to make sure our programming is accessible to everyone so we are offering a base rate of $5 per kit if you pre-reserve. If you are able to contribute beyond that, pay it forward and help support local artists! Supplies are limited and extras may not be available the day of the workshop.
