Cranberries aren't native to Los Angeles, but that shouldn't stop you from preserving one of Thanksgiving's favorite condiments. In this class, we'll water bath can one of our favorite marmalades: cranberry and orange.

Coming up:
Marmalade season: What to do with all that backyard fruit?
Liquors for the Holidays: Hint: They make great gifts!
The Bacon Cure: Join us as we dish up bacon ice cream and have a guest bacon expert who will show us how to "cure" bacon.

All our classes offer instruction on the principles of basic canning. You'll be able to water bath can almost everything -- stone fruit, tomatoes, strawberries, figs, and marmalades -- regardless of what we can for the class.

Class fee is $65 and includes all course materials. Just come with your apron, closed-toe shoes, and your favorite paring knife. Class attendees will bring home one or more jars of what is prepared and preserved in class, and a complimentary scoop of ice cream. To reserve your spot, email us at or call 626.355.9650.
