Summer is here, which means it’s time to make the most of all the delicious fruits and herbs at the farmers market. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll start off by making a classic Seascape strawberry jam using INNA jam maker Dafna Kory’s perfected technique. To add a twist, we’ll then experiment by adding different fresh summer herbs like thyme and basil to micro-batches of jam. We’ll taste each of the different strawberry-herb variations, share our reactions, and discuss how to create unique flavor combinations to different tastes and culinary applications.
Each participant will take home a jar of freshly made jam and a jamming starter kit, including a separate jar, a muslin bag for woody herbs, and pectin. Versed in the fundamentals of jamming, you’ll be ready to start designing your own signature flavors and preserving your favorite summer fruits to enjoy year-round.
