Fall bearing raspberries haven’t arrived yet and you just finished picking all the currants and gooseberries. Blueberries are at their peak and all throughout the garden are edible flowers and herbs that can add depth to your berry preserves. Join V Smiley of V Smiley Preserves to learn how to make flavor-balanced, honey-sweetened, no-added-pectin preserves. We’ll discuss how to prepare berry preserves and how to incorporate herbs and flowers into fruit preserving. As we cook our berries in a beautiful Mauviel copper jam pan, we’ll discuss the often-misunderstood element of pectin. At the end, you’ll go home with a jar of preserves a recipe for honey-sweetened berry jam.
