Home Preserving Basics Class

How to make sugar free jams



2 hours Class size 1 to 40 label $60


In-person classes are permitted in Queensland, under the state government's guidelines

Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Do you love jam, jam making and good old fashioned home preserving? Did you stop doing it because of all that sugar?  Well, we have the solution for you; home preserving basics / sugar-free replacements.   

Join Valerie Pearson, author of Sugar Free Home Preserving,  as she takes you through traditional jam making and then flip it on its head and shows you have to do this without sugar. The jams taste amazing and it is fast and easy to make.  Whether you’re a beginner or just want to know more, by the end, you will have a good foundation for filling your pantry with delicious home preserves.

There will also be available for sale on the night – preserving kits, supplies and equipment, plus copies of Valerie’s Book ‘Sugar Free Home Preserving’

Presented by Valerie Pearson from Green Living Australia.

 

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • A few recipes and step by step guide
  • Tastings of different sugar free jams during the workshop (Yummmm!)
  • Preserving products and kits available for purchase during the workshop.

 

What to bring

  • Pen and paper to take notes!

Valerie became a well informed and conscious home cook and cheese connoisseur and delved into the science behind fermented foods. Valerie published her first book, Home Cheese Making in Australia, in 2016 and is currently working on her second book, Sugar Free Home Preserving.

Using these skills, she has been able to invent a sustainable, energy efficient, life changing product, EasyOven. Joanne has created education programs in Design and Technology and the Sciences as well launching a new program in Australia, Unemployed to Self-Employed. All her work promotes employment, encourage Empowerment, Entrepreneurship and encourages a positive behavioral shift in the way our communities live their lives.  Joanne is a member of the following:

Valerie's and Joanne's class was fun and very educational.
The class was small (8 people) and the Woodsters venue was quiet, informal and easy to park near.
I particularly liked that the ladies focused solely on no and low sugar jams and were happy to answer questions.
I also loved that we were able to taste the jam that was made.
Perhaps in future classes, they could provide a selection of pre-made jams and preserves for tasting, as we only got to try one flavour. Just a thought.
Thanks Valerie and Joanne for sharing your extensive knowledge.
