Jam and Preserve workshops

This group is open to all members of the DBWI. If you would like to attend a meeting as a guest, please email debeauvoirwi@gmail.com.

Seasonally we run occasional jam and preserve making workshops (which can be at quite short notice) to make produce that we sell at community events, in particular the DBWI stall at the De Beauvoir Gardeners Flower & Produce festival in September and the De Beauvoir Association Christmas Fair at the end of November. The workshops take place in someone’s kitchen and we can usually accommodate up to four people at a time.   

In the past, prior to Covid, we have organised annual fruit picking trips where we visit a local (ish) pick your own farm and return laden with the fruits in season, for instance blackcurrants, redcurrants, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. We would welcome anyone who can donate fruit from their gardens, or empty jam jars with lids to reuse and fill with the delicious jams we make.

Here are some pictures showing some of our products.
