Confections 101

Presenter:  Jake Moser

Location:  Masonic Building, Albion, PA (Next to McDonalds)

"Confections101" is my class I teach beginners, and I concentrate on the aspect that you do not need all the expensive candy machines to create a quality confection. My class is very much a hands on class where I can/will take a person that has never made a confection and by the end of the class they will create a marketable confection. During my class I will cover, and create 4 different confections with descriptions of how to make each one. I will also have 1 or more students making the same confection that I am explaining to show just how easy maple confections can be. The class will culminate with a question answer period and possibly a explanation of a new confection that I am currently developing.  Lunch is included


Backyard Sugaring

Presenter:  Laura Dengler and Mark Lewis



Learn what is needed to make Pure Maple Syrup in your own backyard. Topics include: identifying maple trees, tapping a tree, why sap flows, gathering and storing the sap, boiling down the sap, when is it syrup?, filtering syrup, grading, tasting, canning and storage of your finished product..  Handouts and lunch included.
