SO EASY TO PRESERVE AND CAN LOCAL FOODS

When your garden overflows with fresh produce and the farmers’ market explodes into rows of brilliantly colored fruits and vegetables, it’s time to join in the flavorful tradition of preserving good food. This food preservation class will cover how to can in a hot water bath and which foods should be canned using a pressure canner.

Pressure canner lids will be tested for accuracy as part of the program.

Participants will make and preserve a jar of peaches to take home as part of the class. Jeanne Darling and Amy VanAlstyne from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Delaware County will teach this class.
