Preserving Jam with Sheri

Live in person at the JCA – 1342 Congress St., Portland

Wednesday, August 25th at 5:30 PM

Making jam this time of year is a fun and delicious way to take advantage of fresh fruit either grown yourself, given to you by friends or purchased at the farmer’s market or the supermarket. It is healthy, fun to make and tastes great.
