Make Your Own: Jam and Chutney Fonmon Castle Glamorgan 7 Feb 2015

Make Your Own: Jam and Chutney

Do you want to learn or are interested in the art of jam making and preservation. There is now a workshop for you to learn the craft in the 800 year old Fonmon castle in Glamorgan in South Wales.  An opportunity for an  unique and magical ‘Make Your Own: Jam and Chutney’ adventure?

This workshop by Angharad Underwood, founder of the multi award-winning The Preservation Society, you will learn how to make traditional jam and chutney.

The course is a hands-on & practical affair: you’ll be involved at every stage of the way, cutting fruit, measuring sugar and filling jars. This approach to preserving is not only much more fun, but helps you really understand each stage of the preserving process, and therefore get the best results you want when experimenting at home. You will also take home the fruits of your labours from our hands on, interactive class!

Our class takes place at the stunning Fonmon Castle in the Vale of Glamorgan. Built in 1180 and set in three acres of beautiful gardens, Fonmon Castle has been owned by only two families in its 800 year history.

On arrival you will be offered coffee or tea with homemade biscuits before heading to the kitchens for the class with Angharad. After the class, we have arranged for you to have a private tour of the castle followed by a beautiful lunch, featuring produce from the garden and near locality.

After lunch, before packing up your goodies, enjoy a stroll in the walled garden and discover all of its secret delights.
