Nothing says you care like a homemade gift, especially one that comes from your kitchen.

During this workshop, you'll learn how to make easy homemade spiced blueberry jam, hearty and delicious soup-in-a-jar and other special treats. Samples and recipes provided.

Is there too much leftover turkey sitting in your refrigerator after big holiday dinners?  Come learn about some creative ways to use those leftover holiday goodies. During this workshop, we’ll make and sample some easy recipes with a healthy twist featuring turkey and other typical holiday leftovers. Samples and recipes included.
