Join Caroline Craig for a lecture and demonstration on canning and preserving. Learn about traditional preservation methods, look at the equipment used, and see some of the produce of Bert and Nina Fletcher Little’s farm. Caroline worked for the Little family for more than thirty years and one summer put up more than eight hundred jars of jams, jellies, and preserves. This month she shares the family’s favorite seasonal recipe for strawberry jam. Samples will be available for tasting, and registration is required.
