Learn how to make jams, chutneys and jellies from seasonal produce at the The Yorkshire Preservatory
Eating more local and seasonal food helps us reconnect with nature's cycles and the passing of time. There is nothing more delicious than spreading home made blackberry jam on toast in Autumn, or lavishing spoonfuls of freshly made strawberry jam on a scone in Summer. To learn how to preserve fruit and vegetables at home is like learning to bottle the seasons.
Preserve making, whether it is jams, chutneys, curds, jellies or pickles may seem like a complex skill. In the past folk may have learned from their parents and grandparents but in today's fast paced way of life skills previously passed down through the family may have got lost. Take time out of your busy life to discover the art of preserving. Who knows, you may then pass the skills you learn in this enjoyable past time onto future generations of your own.
COME AND have fun learning to make your own home made preserves in a friendly atmosphere
Not only will you leave with inspiration and enthusiasm to "make your own" but you will also take the preserves you have created in the workshop home with you.
Workshops are designed to be hands-on, with demonstrations and guidance in the art of home made preserve making.
