A Little Sweetness: Low-Sugar Jams

Learn how to create low-sugar, fruit-forward spreads. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 8 people
Time: 3 hours

Who doesn’t love a jar of sweet, sticky jam? The problem is, jams can be too sweet, overpowering the fruit until you feel you’ve just eaten a spoonful of sugar. In this workshop, you’ll learn about the three key elements of jam making: acid, sugar, and pectin. Then you’ll discover how to balance those elements to create low-sugar, fruit-forward spreads. During the workshop, we’ll go through the entire process, finishing our jams in a water-bath canner so that they are shelf stable. The ratios you’ll learn will allow you to make jam at home from just about any fruit.

Pick a Pickle: Easy Pickling Processes

Pickling is a safe, easy way to preserve almost any vegetable. Sign up at TwiceasTasty.com.
Size: 4 to 8 people
Time: 2 to 3 hours

Pickling is a safe, easy way to preserve almost any vegetable. This hands-on workshop focuses on the basic science behind pickling and is customized to the type of produce you want to preserve. You also choose the technique: mealtime pickles that are ready in minutes, refrigerator pickles ideal for single-jar batches, fermented pickles big on flavor and crunch, or pasteurized pickles perfect for long-term storage. These small workshops get everyone involved in the process and learning by doing. You’ll leave the workshop with a jar of pickled goodness to share with family and friends—or keep to yourself.
