About the Classes

Do you want to learn how to make jam? Do you want to get your jam on at the secret Anarchy in a Jar headquarters? Learn how to take advantage of local produce and make delicious homemade jam in this hands-on class taught in a cozy, professional jam kitchen.

You’ll learn the time-honored tools and tricks to preserve summer in a jar with Laena's easy and unique methods. Each participant gets a jar of handmade jam to take home with them, along with recipes and tips to try at home. The class ends with a jam, cheese & wine/beer pairing and tasting.

Classes are for beginner’s, but folks with jam skills are welcome to join and learn some new tricks.

You will learn:

  • tips on sourcing fruit
  • cooking and preserving, while maximizing flavor
  • canning and processing jars for shelf-stable jam
  • tips for serving jam
  • enjoying your final product with cheese & wine/beer!

Summer 2016 classes are held at our private facility or the Brooklyn Brainery. We've got jam, salsa and pickle classes all coming up this summer!

Stay tuned for dates in August and September.
