Description:

Taking the time to plan, plant, and tend to a garden can be very fun and relaxing. But what do you do when it comes time to harvest and you are up to your eyeballs in produce? Sign up for NC Cooperative Extension, Currituck County Center’s Home Food Preservation Series, and learn to can all the produce you harvest. Join us from 12:00 to 2:00 pm 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: https://2022foodpreservationseriespart2.eventbrite.com to reserve your seat! 

July 27th 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 24th 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. Then prep several different items to be dehydrated.
