Food Preservation 101

Just the basics to get you started with canning in a 2 hour food preservation class. This class is perfect for the person who might have been intimidated by food preservation and want a gentle way to learn more about to preserve your food safety. We will use a boiling water canner, food dehydrator, and freezing techniques. At the end of the class, you will learn the skills that can help you preserve things like tomatoes, salsas, fruits, jams, jellies, vegetables, and more! The first hour (6pm-7pm) will be teaching and demonstrations; the second hour (7pm-8pm) will be general food preservation question and answer and time to have your dial-gauge pressure canner lid tested at no additional cost! These lids should be tested every year.
