The Canning Basics: A Hands-On Workshop

Canning season is here!  I love canning vegetables and making jam from fresh garden produce.  Seeing those rows of home-canned food is so satisfying!  Did you know that there is a lot of science behind canned food?  It’s important to know how to properly preserve food to ensure safety of the product.

Are you interested in canning, but not sure where to start?  Or maybe you’ve heard horror stories about exploding pressure canners?  Join us for the Canning Basics Workshop on June 10, hosted by Kate Whitney with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.  The course will cover topics about food safety, water bath canning, and pressure canning.  Participants will get hands-on experience with water-bath and pressure canning, and you get to take home canned products!

The class will be held on Saturday, June 10, from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Meridian Senior Center.  The cost is $30, which includes canning supplies and lunch.  Space is limited and we need a headcount for canning supplies and lunch, so please register by completing the form below or call the Extension Office at 254-435-2331.
