2016 Canning Parties in your home  














Learn from New Jersey's first and only Certified Master Food Preserver .


Preserve the Summers Harvest without Chemical Preservatives, Agricultural Sprays, Gluten or GMO's!  


I have been preserving food for (gulp) over 30 years now. You may ask why, the simple answer is most products on the market don't have any flavor. I harvest only when Mother Nature tells me that items are ready this yields the most flavorful produce vs. corporations which harvest based on the bottom line, force the ripening of produce or add extra sugar or salt to give flavor. I preserve without refined sugar, conventional pectin, or added preservatives. All sourced produce is local, and sustainably grown Certified Naturally Grown with a touch of wild vegetation. 


"When you put the highest quality ingredients in the results are amazingly delicious nutritious products!"  


Want to learn how to:

                              Stock your pantry for the winter? 

                              Teach your children how to live more sustainably while giving them nutrient dense food?

                             Make delicious wedding or baby shower favors that will have your guest clamoring for more? 

Host a canning party at your house and let the fun begin! 


I combine the freshest produce possible and a touch of the wilderness to create such items as Suckleberry Jam, Violet Jelly, Garlic Dill Pickles, Bite My Sweet Ass Salsa, Russian Sauerkraut and much, much more. 


Each party we will discuss:

  • Different methods to use for canning
  1. Low acid vs high acid processing
  2. Fermentation vs quick pickle
  • What is needed to make preserved food safe
  • How to maximize the nutrition in your preserved food


Parties are 2 1/2 hours long.

Minimium of 5 people needed to host a party.

Each guest needs to bring their favorite knife, apron, and a small cardboard box to carry their product home.

Each guest will leave with at least 4 jars of product and a good handle on canning methods so they will feel comfortable canning on their own.
