Canning.....change the way you think about your food!

About this experience

Preserving food through canning has always been an important tradition in food preservation. While this technique is fairly simple, there are steps and safety concerns that should be respected. Water-bath canning is an easy method of canning that allows you to store jam, pickles, salsa, and tomato sauce. Processing the jars in boiling water helps lock in the fresh, seasonal flavors for all year enjoyment. In this hands on class you will learn everything you need to know to get you started water bath canning. You will discuss equipment, safety, and recipes. Hands on experience provided

each step of the way while pickling a jar of veggies for you to take home. Other methods of preservation including dehydrating will be discussed. One glass of wine will be served during the class for guests over the age of 21.
