EVENT: You can can… preserves and jams

Enjoy the taste of homemade jams and preserves from your own fruit, with our Jan. 24 “Canning Strawberry Preserves and Freezer Jams” class.

This one-hour class will teach the basics of making and canning fruit preserves and jams. For the safety of participants, we ask that you wear closed-toe shoes and tie back any long hair you might have. Feel free to bring an apron to protect your clothing, since this is a “hands on” class.

Registration costs $15, to cover material costs, and must be made through to save your seat and receive notice of any changes. Pay online through Eventbrite, or pay at the door with exact cash or by check (payable to: Sarasota Board of County Commissioners).

For more information, call 941-861-5000 or email

Instructor: Dr. Maria Rometo, Family and Consumer Sciences agent III, UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County.

NOTE: Classes and events may be canceled at any time due to low registration or other circumstances, with full refunds issued for paid events. Similar classes or events often are offered on future dates.
