ACH be jammin’

IMG_8550 Oh, this jam is so good. Watching Ann teach last night was amazing. Her years of experience was perfect for both novices and old hands alike. I realized that I have some bad habits that I am sure to revisit now.
Ann discussed the different types of pectin and different recipes. Bottom line, follow a recipe and keep everything clean and sterile and you shouldn’t have a problem.
IMG_8542IMG_8544 We were so energized at the end of the class (perhaps it was all the jam tasting) that we have plans to offer another class in mid-October. You really don’t want to miss the opportunity to learn from Ann!

Learn Together Tortellini and Rainbow Eruptions

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Blog


We had some great events last weekend. First, we started our Learn Together series of classes, where adults come together to figure out something new. Last week was tortellini and pesto. Although all participants were avid cooks, we really had to put our heads together to figure out the recipes since none of us had made tortellini before. It was very fun and there were some comical moments along the way. In the end, we had not quite perfect tortellini in a creamy pesto sauce.


Our kid’s class on Saturday was rainbow eruptions. We had a great group of kids who were very excited to experiment. The kids used paints and food color in their eruptions, all of which were pretty spectacular.  They also discussed endothermic reactions – why the jars got colder when the eruptions occurred – and took some temperature readings.
