“Jamming Through the Ages” by Christina Sleeper

The Culinary Historians of San Diego announce an online presentation of “Jamming Through the Ages” by Christina Sleeper at 10:30am on Saturday, February 20, 2021. This event has been rescheduled from March 21, 2020. The event is free and open to the public.

This event will be held online via Zoom. 

For as long as humans have been farming and tending the fields, they have shared a common problem — how to preserve fruits and vegetables that are so delicious when perishable. Making jam was one solution. Over the years, what began as a preservation method has evolved into a mealtime staple, enjoyed for its many unique and delicious flavors even when fresh produce is available.

How long have people been making jams? How does the process work? And how difficult is it for home cooks to make jams?

Christina Sleeper, a State of California-certified Master Food Preserver and jam maker with decades of experience, will answer these questions and more in her lively presentation. Don’t miss it!

10:30am – 12:00pm
