Ever found yourself with a glut of seasonal produce and not sure how to enjoy them throughout the coming months? Do you want to avoid the store-bought jams and preserves which are full of sugar and artificial flavourings? Our resident forager and preserve make Jen Williams will take you through the process of identifying the best seasonal ingredients available and how, using both traditional and modern techniques, to preserve and jar a variety of tasty condiments to enjoy at home.
