10/7/19 Spiced Jam Sessions


Spiced Jam Session ~ Using Spices in Jams and Preserves
October 7, 2019 with Afton Cyrus, 6:00–8:00 pm

How about enjoying local fruit and veggies year-round with your own spiced jams and preserves? If you’ve wanted to try home canning but were unsure about “getting it right,” this is the class for you. We’re delighted to have Afton Cyrus of America’s Test Kitchen teaching at Curio Spice. She is a jam maker extraordinaire and wonderful teacher.

Afton will demonstrate making a spiced-jam, start to finish, demystifying water-bath canning and answering your questions along the way. We’ll explore spice pairings that will take your fruit and vegetable preserves and pickles to next-level delicious.

We’ll be serving light bites to illustrate creative ways to use jams and preserves in both savory and sweet dishes as well as in beverages. You’ll go home with recipes, a jar of jam, and lots of inspiration! You’ll also have a chance to pick up a copy of the cookbook Foolproof Preserving, which Afton contributed to.

Afton Cyrus is a test cook at America’s Test Kitchen. She makes jams and preserves from locally-grown fruit, under the name Jam Sessions, which she sells online and at local events. Afton also sings with her band Walter & the Night Owls, keeping the jam sessions going in the studio and in her kitchen.

Limited to 10 students.
