$15 due by April 28; limit of 10 participants due to COVID-19 precautions

Registration is below

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this event will be a little different than in years past. This year, participants will learn about basic canning procedures, how to prevent food safety risks and food spoilage when canning, where to find safe recipes, and the science behind making a shelf-stable product through a presentation and demonstration-style workshop.

This workshop is focused on using a waterbath (sometimes referred to as a “boiling water”) canner, which is intended for high acid foods such as fruits, pickled items, and (sometimes) tomatoes with added acid. This class is not intended to teach you how to can vegetables, meats, or other low-acid foods; also not intended for elderberry products.
