Penn State Extension: Home Food Preservation: Jams and Jellies – $15
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in home food preservation. Canning is one method of food preservation that allows you to enjoy seasonal foods all year long. While this method of home food preservation has existed for centuries, we have learned much about the science behind safe canning methods in recent years. Home Food Preservation: Jams & Jellies will explain the scientific reasoning behind today’s recommended methods for making and processing jam and jelly, while dispelling food preservation myths and unsafe practices of the past.
In this workshop on jams, jellies and other sweet spreads, you will learn:
The basics of water bath and atmospheric steam canning for processing jam and jelly.
Techniques for making cooked and freezer jam and jelly.
The various types of pectin products and their use for a proper set.
The essential nature of various ingredients to a quality product.
Recipes for reduced sugar and no sugar added jam and jelly.
Georgia Peach Truck rolls into town with whole boxes of Rolling Freestones®, the farm-to-street freestone peaches from our authentic Peach State. Freestone peaches are the peak season varieties to purchase by the box, because they freely separate from their pits for slicing in the kitchen or eating fresh out of hand. Share a box this summer, and cook, can, or freeze a box for winter!
One box of Rolling Freestones® is $45 with no limit on the purchase of multiple boxes. Each box contains one half bushel by volume that weighs approximately 25 pounds, and the peach quantities vary upon sizing from about 50 to 70 peaches in most boxes.
Complement a box of Georgia peaches with a bag of Front Porch Pecans® from Lamar Pecan Company in Hawkinsville, Georgia. A one pound bag of 300 – 350 shelled pecan halves that are graded fancy for presentation is $16.
If June doesn’t work – don’t worry! The Peach Truck will be here in July too!
No advance order or purchase is allowed! For more information, visit Georgia Peach Truck on Facebook.
