Title: Cooking: “Muscadine Jelly”
Description: Starting with muscadines grown in my grandmother’s garden, we will follow the same process my family has used for years to make our own jelly. Muscadines are native to the southeastern US, full of flavor, and make a beautiful jelly. Participants will work in groups of 3 and will each take away 3 jars of homemade muscadine jelly.
Instructor: Kristen Roberson is a native of Lauderdale County, Alabama where her family has lived and farmed for many generations. She learned the process of canning various vegetables and fruits in her grandmother’s kitchen. “I love the process of canning. The women of my family gather regularly at my grandmother’s house to learn from her how to can various produce. We can pickles, vegetable soup, tomatoes, salsa and muscadine jelly- all using produce from her garden. I have explored different fruits on my own and have fallen in love with the process.” Kristen currently lives near Huntsville with her husband (her occasional assistant) and son. She has enjoyed teaching friends and family her love of preserving home-grown foods and is excited to bring those lessons to students at Burritt.
