Join us for a jam making class!

Phinney Canning Class - Learn to make jam!

When: October 11, 2:30 to 5 pm

Where: Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N. 85th St.

Cost: $25

Participants will learn how to make jam using Italian prune plums. Each participant will go home with at least a jar of plum jam prepared during the class. Plums, jars and all other supplies are provided.

Please contact Jen Mullen at to reserve your spot. We can accommodate a maximum of ten people.

This project is sponsored by the Phinney harvest of City Fruit, which is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from the City of Seattle, Department of Neighborhoods.

Any proceeds from the entrance fee will go toward funding the future of the Phinney harvest, which collects unwanted fruit from trees in the neighborhood and donates it to nearby organizations like the Greenwood Food Bank and Silvercrest Senior Housing.

Years ago I had a small publication called beyond blackberries that gave locations of various fruit & nut trees, berries etc... on public land for foraging. Does anyone know of this? is there an updated version? I hate to see fresh food go to waste when I can can anything.

I'm so glad you created this group...looking forward to doing more cooking together!

Hi Brooke-

I'm going over to the Waldorf School today, do you want me to ask TIm about using the pizza oven for a cooking event? I keep thinking about this idea and wanting to see it happen. How are you? Will you be able to come to the meeting on Thursday?
Comment by Brooke Richardson on October 15, 2009 at 9:53am
Pizza event, yes!
Comment by Brooke Richardson on October 15, 2009 at 9:55am

Does anyone have a peel? It's a large flat thing with a handle for sliding the pizza into the oven.

Hey, I was thinking about doing a small beer-brewing event at my place sometime in the next few months. My husband and I used to brew a lot of beer, but got out of the habit. I thought it would be fun to have folks over, rehash techniques with any experienced brewers, and invite any would-be brewers to check out how much fun it can be. Is there any interest in this kind of thing?
Comment by Sue McGann on October 20, 2009 at 1:33pm
John here.. yes I'd be very interested in this. I am a newbie - no brewing experience - but have wanted to learn for some time now..
Comment by Susan Gregory on October 20, 2009 at 1:37pm
I'm definitely interested!

I love the cob oven pizza idea. Funny, I was actually just making tomato sauce when I came in to check my e-mail, so I think I should help out with the sauce part! I have a wooden pizza peel, but I don't know if it will work for the cob oven.
