Canning jars being filled with green beans for preservation

Take your cooking to the next level by ensuring you can safely preserve food with our Food Preservation Classes. With our tested and safe methods, you’ll gain the skills and confidence to preserve food with ease. Join us from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. for a hands-on food preservation experience. Each class requires a $15.00 registration fee which includes canning goodies and recipes. Check out the dates and class descriptions below to see which classes you might want to attend then visit Eventbrite to reserve your seat! 

July 18th Pressure Canning 

Low-acid vegetables need to reach a higher temperature during the preservation process to ensure that they are safe to store on the shelf. Learn more about pressure canning, how to do it safely, why we do it, and what produce requires pressure canning in our pressure canning class. Not only will you learn these skills, but you will put them to the test when we prepare and pressure-can our own vegetables. 

August 1st Dehydration 

Another great way to make produce shelf-stable is to dehydrate it! Learn how to prep items, use a dehydrator, and experiment with other ways to dehydrate products for those who may not have a dehydrator. You’ll practice your techniques by preparing several different items to be dehydrated. 

Reserve your seat today by completing the class registration and payment at Eventbrite. We are accepting cash and check payments in addition to paying via credit card through Eventbrite.
