Canning 101: Maters @Ivy Academy

July 19 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Learn how to can in a casual, open environment. In this three-hour class, you’ll get hands on with water bath canning as well as discover some insights to quick pickling, pressure canning, & be able to preserve all kinds of yummy goodness. Classes are limited to 14 participants as a canner can only hold 7 quarts & we’ll be making two batches. See, you’re learning already!

By the end of the class, you will walk away with the confidence to can your own salsa, jellies, applesauce & more! For $60/per person, you’ll leave with a quart of your own flavorful farm made goods created with locally grown ingredients. You will also have the opportunity to purchase more Feathers & Fruit canned goods too!

Bring snacks &/or lunch as we will be engaged the entire class time but the casual environment will allow for grazing & drinks. BYOB as you will be encouraged to drink every time you hear “prep” (which we only prep for the first hour).

About the instructor: Jessie Gantt-Temple & her husband Robert have owned & farmed Feathers & Fruit in Soddy Daisy since 2016. With a passion for decreasing food waste, Jessie began canning in 2018 after connecting with local farmers who an abundance of crops that no one wanted to go to waste. Before farming, she was also a radio dj & journalist so needless to say she loves to talk. Her goals are to grow her canning skills through sharing them with her community.
