Preserving with Marisa McClellan

At this time of year, we at the Edible Garden are practically overrun by the abundance of the summer harvest. Delicious, fresh food at every turn! But, how to stretch this bounty into the coming months? Canning and preserving are enjoying a renaissance, as more and more Americans discover the pleasures of enjoying the garden's gifts year-round.

Whether you're a canning newbie, curious about where to start, or an old hand, join us at the Garden to learn from food blogger, author, and canning connoisseur Marisa McClellan. The class fee includes a copy of Marisa's newest cookbook, Naturally Sweet Food in Jars, which features over 100 jams, spreads, dips, whole fruits, and sweet pickles. Rather than rely on traditional refined sugar, Marisa explores a variety of natural sweeteners, such as honey, maple, agave, coconut sugar, dried fruits, and fruit juice concentrate.

Marisa will demonstrate a recipe from Naturally Sweet Food in Jars, as well as discuss canning and blogging and personally sign your new book. This class is a perfect introduction to a delicious and nutritious way to enjoy your garden all year  long, and we hope you'll join us. To register, visit and select "Learn."
