Introduction to Home Canning Class, July 16

— Written By Canning

From preserving garden harvest to putting up locally purchased produce, canning is a great way to preserve the season’s bounty. With rising levels of food insecurity, canning is not only important but can serve as a solution to food challenges. Unlike baking, home canning requires knowledge of the science behind food preservation. In this introductory class, participants will learn about the risk of botulism, an overview of proper techniques, and a review of the proper tools for canning. While this is not a hands-on or follow along with class, it covers the information that is needed to implement any safe canning practice.

July 16, 2020, at noon via Zoom.
