Summer in a Jar

A preservation series presented by:

The Downtown Farmers Market, Slow Food Utah, Wasatch Community Gardens, Harmons City Creek and Edible Wasatch. 


Join us for a series of events that celebrate and preserve the flavors of the harvest. We will teach you how to preserve the bounty from your garden or the farmers market in a variety of ways. You can learn what to do to properly can your tree fruit and tomatoes. We will talk about how to preserve tasty treats, condiments, sauces and salsas, so you can enjoy the flavors of summer all year long. Whatever you have been wanting to preserve, we have a class for you. We will also have opportunities for you to pick-up seasonal guides, and to see demonstrations and get advice from expert canners.

Summer in a Jar 2013:

We are currently planning our 2014 Summer in a Jar Canning Series. Please check back this spring for an updated schedule.

We've got another set of classes to satisfy your canning needs! You'll learn hands-on how to can fruits and vegetables at their height of freshness. You won't want to miss out as seasonal items come and go. Trust me, spicy pickled okra in the middle of winter is a TREAT!! Participants will work in stations to prep, blend, and jar a variety of seasonal recipes primarily using a water bath technique. The end result is 2 jars to take home and the knowledge to create your own recipes to preserve the harvest. 

  • Cost: $25 per class. 
  • Space is limited to 16 participants. 
  • Classes are held at Harmons City Creek Cooking School from 6 to 9 pm. 
  • Register at Wasatch Community Gardens
