Homemade jam on warm bread—a slice of heaven! If you’ve always wanted to learn how to make jam, now’s your chance. Penn State Extension’s Urban Homesteading Series is holding a class to teach you techniques to stretch your leftover fruit harvest into a delicious spread to bring you a bit of summer into the cold months ahead. And, since midsummer is peak time for berries here in Pennsylvania, what better time to hold a jam-making class?

A Penn State Extension Food Preservation and Nutrition Educator will present the preservation process for berries using hot water canning in this workshop. Best of all, you’ll walk away from this class with your very own jar of jam or preserves!

The workshop will be held on July 21 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. But if you’re interested, you better get jamming right now as registration ends on Friday, July 17th.
