Summer & Fall Workshops with Adriene's Canning & Jamming

Join Adriene Mackenzie, of Adriene's Canning & Jamming for more canning and pierogi workshops jam-packed with fun and helpful tips!

Dip your toes (and some produce) into water bath canning with Adriene’s Canning and Jamming. Join us for each workshop or whichever tickles your pickle as you learn all about preserves. Water bath canning is the easiest way to make shelf-stable jams and pickles.

Due to the nature of this canning method, the products will need to rest at Grey Roots for 24 hours before being picked up. If you have any questions about that process, please let us know.

These hands-on workshops cover all the steps to successfully prepare your own canning projects and pierogi. Participants will prep, create, sample and take home the fruits of their labour. The workshops feature morning and evening timeslots, and include all ingredients, small group instruction, and good conversation with like minded foodies.

By popular request, we have added additional timeslots and dates. Depending on numbers, timeslots may be combined, if deemed necessary.

Max 10 participants per workshop.
