Cooking course - berry jam

Welcome to an interesting cooking course to a real farm! Course is held at Raijan Aitta farm, which has a long tradition in berry growing. Strawberry harvesting began in the 1970´s after the farm no longer had livestock. During this course, we make delicious berry jam from berries from our plantation or from the forest. We pick up strawberries, raspberries or blackcurrants from our plantation, blueberries and lingonberries from the nearby forests. In the summer season we use fresh raw materials, other seasons traditionally frozen berries. The jam is made out of berries and sugar by cooking according to a traditional recipe. The delicious taste of berries is well presented in a sweet jam. Berry jam is used in desserts, pastries, porridge, ice cream and also as with main dish. Each participant gets their own jam with a label.
