Christmas in a Jar at Acton Scott Historic Working Farm.
Winter preserving is usually undertaken with Christmas in mind, and using up the last of the orchard and vegetable bounty. Spend a lovely day creating wonderful Christmas inspired preserves that will liven up your Christmas store cupboard or be given as handmade gifts. All Christmas in a Jar courses are suitable for vegans.
We will make different seasonal preserves at each workshop. Participants can come to all of them if they wish. Please contact us for more details.
Please bring an apron and something sturdy to carry the preserves home in.
Tutor: Sara-Jane Brough
Sara-Jane’s ethos is to reintroduce long-forgotten recipes, using seasonal produce such as the Shropshire prune damson and the bounty from the hedgerows and her kitchen garden. Her passion for everything preserved led her to start her business, The Ludlow Jam Pan, in October 2008.
Acton Scott Historic Working Farm is an outdoor site. Most areas are wheelchair accessible, but please be aware that the farm yard is cobbled and the ground often uneven.
