“Jamming Through the Ages” by Christina Sleeper

POSTPONED – This event was postponed due to COVID-19 facility closures.

The Culinary Historians of San Diego present “Jamming Through the Ages” by Christina Sleeper at 10:30am on Saturday, March 21, 2020 in the Neil Morgan Auditorium of the San Diego Public Library, 330 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA, 92101. The event is free and open to the public.

Sleeper will entertain her audience as she relates the story of how a solution to the problem of saving tasty fresh fruits and vegetables evolved into a popular mealtime staple — jam, now enjoyed for its many unique and delicious flavors even when fresh produce is available. How long has this been going on? How does the process work, and how difficult is it? This California-certified Master Food Preserver and jam maker will answer all in her lively presentation.
