Afternoon Tea Preserving:
Cake Lovers & Cake Makers Rejoice, we'll be making the most delicious preserves! We'll use 3 different techniques for all of your cake making needs, making our own curds (you will never buy them again!), seedless jam and a sexy French Style Strawberry Jam from the Queen of Jams, Christine Ferber. We'll end the day with a lovely afternoon tea of scones and clotted cream where you can taste test your creations, and you'll have jars to take home too.
You'll learn the basics in a very relaxed and fun environment, making jams and curds, and THE most difficult of all, the elusive Strawberry Jam. You'll be able to pimp up your jars of deliciousness, making your very own creations.
(Time - 10am til 3pm, light lunch about 12:30 with cheeses, labne, houmous, breads, home made coleslaw and sourkraut, and then about 2:30 afternoon tea taste testing with some scones and clotted cream.)
Angharad owns The Preservation Society, a multi award winning preserving business based in Chepstow. She loves using local seasonal ingredients and sharing her passion and experience for preserving and sharing the jam love. She recently returned from a trip to Cameroon where she taught over 40 ladies the art of preserving, they have since taught a further 200 and she also teaches in her local prison.
