Summer is here, and we've learned how to make the most of all the delicious fruits and herbs at the farmers market. In this hands-on workshop, we started off by making a classic Seascape strawberry jam using INNA jam maker Dafna Kory's perfected technique. To add a twist, we then experimented by adding different fresh summer herbs like rosemary with thyme and lemon verbena with spearmint in micro-batches of jam. We tasted each of the different, delicious strawberry-herb variations, shared our reactions, and were off to make our own individual culinary experiments!
Each participant took home a jar of their own freshly made jam and a jamming starter kit, including a separate jar, a muslin bag for woody herbs, and pectin. Versed in the fundamentals of jamming, we're now ready to design our own signature flavors and preserve our favorite summer fruits to enjoy year-round!
